Oh wow zuzu, what a beautiful showing of your plants! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your oriental lilies! Love your Selenicereus grandiflora with the yellow trim, stunning! I like the way your yellow rain lilies have grown in mass. How old are they? My poor little rain lilies pop up one at a time here and there.

Thanks Saba and Feara'.

Yep, I know the feeling, the same thing was happening with mine, Feara - so I dug the little stragglers up and stuck chunky bunches of them together into pots for a few seasons to coax them to grow more thickly together. Then, as each pot becomes rootbound, I can return them into the beds, which seems to achieve the "massing" that I wanted, at least so far.
If they spread out again, I guess I can start over.


Here is one of my rain lilies which is still "doing time" confined in a pot, probably needs another year to fill in a bit thicker:
Spiral ginger (Costus scaber):
Another member of the ginger family,
Curcuma 'Pride of Burma':
Dancing girl ginger (Globba schomburgkii):
And another Globba, this one is called "White Dragon" (G. wintii):
Glory Bower (Clerodendrum bungeii):
Angelwing Begonia:

Thanks very much Raccoon and Bali.

Yep, it's the same here Bali.
The common name that I know for those is "Hawaiian Ti Plant" (Cordyline fruticosa) and I love to add them to the garden each summer for extra color and a tropical look - but they're not hardy here, so in the fall I either dig them up, or just cut them off and re-root them for the next year.

Actually, I do about the same thing to save over my angelwing begonias, because although some of our winters are mild enough for them to survive, and it's nice when they do -- but -- I know that I can't really count on it, so I'd rather be safe than lose them and be sorry.

Hi Bali
Tomato plants are not hardy in my area, so no, the same plants will not grow back from the root-stock like true hardy plants do.

But, sometimes, I have had tomato plants "volunteer" from the seeds that lay on the ground all winter where I failed to pick up fruit that fell the summer before.
Always a fun surprise.
