QuestionDogwoods?


My hubby loves Dogwoods, I was wondering if it were actually possible to grow one in Central Florida? Also any idea of where to purchase one would be great! I have googled Dogwoods in Florida and such but am only coming up with plant files for Cornus Florida... Sorry if I sound dumbfounded, just new to me. Thanks for your time!

I don't know how they do down there, but I have some Dogwoods if you want to trade.

Hello


Hey there - Picky pants huh?
What kind of Bromeliads do you have (And no, I didn't look at your list until just now! ) It sounds like you have a lot of herbs as well. Do any of them do well indoors with not-so-strong light (Winter, ya know.)
Thanks!

Jude, do you have any other flowering trees that get over 10' tall that may do well in Florida?

Most herbs do well indoors in low lighting, I actually have mine in the shade and they are doing extremely well. I am currently trying to root cuttings of Patchouli, lemon balm and Greek Columnar Basil, if they root I'll know in about a week or two. The herbs I have that are ready to go are a huge rosemary (I just have too much for my culinary needs), a small rooted feverfew and small Gotu Kola. I also have a Pink Syngonium that I can share, Plenty of the bromeliad! LOL I however don't know which type it is as it was a gift, I attached a pic so you can see it. Just to let you know the Bromeliad has spikes that shoot up when it blooms that have delicate red leafs and green seed pods with purple tips. It's really quite beautiful when it's in bloom.

I also have Babe in the Manger(Epiphyllum oxypetalum)that I could send you a piece of. Let me know if anything I have interests you.
