I am almost believing that I am an intermediate gardener. I have been doing this for 7 years now. I live in South Carolina between Charleston and Columbia. I am a high school teacher, and live on a small farm with my husband, 3 children, 3 dogs, 2 cats and 7 horses. I really love Lantanas, camellias, cold hardy palms, and crepe myrtles, and I am trying to collect every variety that I can find, but I am expanding my repertoire (sp?). I can use all the help I can get!
I would like to fill my yard with native plants, but I also want to include some specimens from other places such as my native Brazil. It is difficult to find Brazilian plants that can withstand the winters here, however! It also gets extremely HOT in the summers, so delicate plants are a challenge.
I can use all the help anyone can spare, for sure!

I live in: United States

My zone is: 8a/almost/bSC

My favorite forum 1 is Southern Gardening.
