N.O

ORIGANUM According to the RHS Index of Garden Plants, nearly every species we list is hardy to Zone 8 or 9. What a crock, who comes up with this stuff, winter in the mountains of Turkey at 2,000m doesn't sound like palm trees to me. The scary thing is most beginning gardeners and even some of the experienced ones actually take them seriously. (Want a chuckle; check out their Allium zone ratings;

A treasure courtesy of John from H&H, this thing is tiny with dense tufts of grassy foliage only a couple inches tall and short scapes of bell shaped flowers followed by heavy crops of ornamental blue berries, (not to be confused with blueberries); its cute enough for a trough and sure to elicit comment.____ZONE 6

Opuntia fragilis ex Lake of the Woods Canada

Opuntia fragilis ex Lake of the Woods Canada

A tiny padded form, cute enough for a trough, this originally came from one of the most northerly sites for a Cactus, Dick has grown it for many years and brought us some. We had originally planned to ship it back to a Canadian nursery however CITES in its infinite stupidity prevents us from sending it back from whence it came. (In California if you catch a Bullfrog and release it back into the pond it just came from you can be fined $$$$; Government officials should be forced to take a common sense test and shot if they fail).____ZONE 4
