I began gardening around 1998 when I discovered GardenWeb. Since then I have aquired hundreds of plants from all over the United States & different parts of the world. At least 75% of my gardens are GardenWeb trades.

I am a stay at home mom of 3 little men. I garden for theropy. I always say "Happiness is a shovel under my foot!"

I collect several plants: Abutilons, Irises (many varieties), Gingers (many varities), Amaryllis (also bulbs in the amaryllis family), Crinums, Hardy Geraniums, Hardy Ferns, Hardy Hibiscus, Passifloras, Bananas, Salvias, Alocasias, Colocasias, Xanthosomas, Bromeliads, Maples, Clerodendrums, Thunbergia, and many more.

I consider myself a foliage person. I like variegation in greens, yellows, creams, wines, etc. & as many different textures as I can find. I like conversational plants.

My favorite words to hear...."Can I have a piece of that?"

I live in: United States

My zone is: AL 8
