Hi Yvonne. Sorry to say I do not know.  It should be Dallas as that is where my aunt lives.  She herself had a small but lovely and profusely packed garden.  She is my inspiration as my yards are also small.  I plant every spring something new, ever shrinking the boring grass.

Yvonne, the daylilies should have gotten to you within 2 days of shipment so that seems right on schedule. They are tough, don't mind heat/sun. I do mulch mine, just not deeply and not right up against the plant stalk. Full sun, plenty of water and they should do just fine for you. Happy Gardening.

Yvonne what I do before I put my seeds into the soil is soak them on a wet paper towel for 2 or 3 days or longer. You can wait until you see the seeds sprout on the paper towel then put into soil. Hope this will help

Iris's are so easy to grow, just plant like the thing says, a little of the rhizome above soil line and they spread, so I would plant as far apart as it suggests. Lovely flowers, too. Marian

My Begonia was in a maroon pot, the way I photographed it ~ I am no expert ~ makes it look like it was in the ground, though. Are you saying the 20 D. temp. here is going to kill the tubers I didn't bother to bring in and preserve are going to die? Just kidding. I am surprised that yours didn't make it though. Only 1 of the 12 or 24 tubers I planted even flowered, & that was like in late August. I was so disappointed. I planned and planted my entire porch display for 2011 around the begonias I bought. Good thing I had lots of other annuals & there is always Home Depot just a couple miles from me. The seller refunded my money, they have one of the best guarantees in the biz. I have been doing pots and baskets since my first foray into the garden world, 12 years ago. I hadn't done Begonias before, but I seriously have thousands of bulbs, corms, rhizomes etc., in my yard, in ground & in pots. (I went a little obsessively crazy those first 4 years), it was great fun. Then my daughter, DeAnna was hurt and became ill and died in 2007. She was 27. It almost killed me, I will never be the same ever. It almost killed her 2 sisters too, they were best friends. My garden kept me alive because all I could manage was keeping it alive. And there are a lot of trees, shrubs, woody and herbaceous, perennials and above mentioned collection of bulbs ....and I personally planted every single one. There was not 1 growing thing on the 1/3 acre we built our house to retire in on. Dirt and rocks, and some really nice boulders that I built the beds around. It is time for a major overhaul, just when my husband has decided he wants to sit and do basically nothing all day every day. It is quite the challenge after 30 years. But this isn't a pity-party site so I will stop there. I am going to start selling my flowers, as my garden is totally organic and a "Backyard Wildlife Habitat", and I have so many flowers that just go over with me being the only one that sees them. I am also and actually 1st, going to open the yard to the public. There is so much beauty, but not so much unless shared. It will be cash that I need to travel to other gardens and hummingbird retreats and groups of like minded people to talk to about our passion, growing things. We spent our life savings trying to save DeAnna, it was worth every penny, I would do it again & again. It gave her more time, and she actually started feeling good sometimes, it is a long story, ugliness entered her life at 22. She was always an incredible beauty, 5'11", waist length black hair and a smile, well, nothing is more important. The money was insignificant. Factually gone though. So, I will sell beauty cut right then for people for their homes. My daffodils start in early March, some of them are really fragrant, and all are lovely. DeAnna lived life all-in, so I will do that for her, now, to the best of my ability. People sometimes say "It's been 4 years, Marian, time to let it go" What a joke. I will NEVER LET HER GO. I do not want or need to let her go. Psycho-babble that 'letting things go. I will, however plant my garden again and grow carrots, her favorite veg. Pot roast night, she would have 3 bites of meat, 1/2 of a potato and 10 carrots, I kid you not. So, all that over 1 comment about begonias. Just get me started and look out! Thanks, Marian
