Hooray for rain (it only took a hurricane)! We're all very thankful (plants, people & wildlife) for the respite, regardless of the source. I've taken a few photos of some of the plants/plant combinations that seemed to have thrived in our less than idyllic climate this summer. Also included are plants that I frequently get asked about by members, staff & guests. I've taken some of your great suggestions for plantings & always welcome your plant success/crisis stories/questions!

|Colocasia esculenta (giant elephant ear) Could be enough roughage in just 1 of those ears for your weekly dietary fiber allowance.|
