"I live in Zone 7, and there are varieties of these that will come back every year. They don't even completely die back some winters here, but they did last year. As long as a few are left, it won't take long for them to come…"
"Diane Meyers is right. This is a gorgeous, unusual plant which won't grow here in MI. It did grow in Alabama when I lived there. The fruit is edible and if you look on the web you can find many recipes."
Hi Fama, thanks for your adding me as a friend, and your pictures are beautiful. As you know, I have been announcing my new website, and so far the responses have been from out-of-state which is fine, but wondering why CA gardeners are so unresponsive.

I had the look in my old yard, but this one is much larger and it's taking me a while to fill it up.
"Same deck August 2013 with all the mature flax. Couldn't find these in stores this spring & tried to order on-line from California but the company went out of business I guess. Always use Pay-pal (you will get your money back)!!"
"Grandchildren make all the intensity of raising your children worth every minute! Why didn't someone tell me how fun this is? I had to wait too long for my first cuties to come along. Now we are having such a great time together. . ."
"You're right, Keryn. 90 F feels really hot and uncomfortable to me, whereas I'll bet that is comfortable for you. And I am so jealous that your winter daytime temps are 50 to 65F. Our daytime winter temps in the coldest months (January and…"
