I was hoping that by picking the 'bulbs', it also meant the root/tuber family as well. Like the idea of getting extra plantings to be seperated and then moved to new locations(or maybe shared).

Like Pushin-up-Daisies,I prefer perennials for my landscape,but I checked tropicals because I enjoy puttering around with them as a challenge. Also the balance of trees,shrubs,and the perennials is what I try to achieve. Then of course there is my veggies. UT-OH, now I'm really getting confused.Better go to another post.
Happy gardening,
Bill

Thank you dirty & pushin! I love perennials also so what category do they fall under? On the other hand I agree with Angie because I love a variety also and it's hard to nail it down to one, plus I really love the native plants. So I guess I'd have to combine and say native perennials.

What about shrubs? Perennials? I love my Encore Azaleas and the perennials! Since I love my lilies (Oriental, Orienpets, Asian) and Narcissus best of the options, I selected bulbs, but who can just pick one!?

I like Mandy's suggestion of native perennials, and I have had a local designer and Master Gardener help me with the hollies and wax myrtle to restore what the developer destroyed. I'm new to coastal NC (from IA and NY, zones 5 and 6, now in zone 8 with totally different soil condition known as SAND), and the help was essential for me to bring back the local wildlife quickly. Okay, so I can do without the deer returning and motion detectors alert me to run out at all hours of the night and scare them away from my pittosporum!

I too like perennials but picked bulbs and vines. Truly anything with a flower is what I love.
