    • So, I did some digging for you (digging… giggle!):
      Masterwort, dianthus, foxglove & bugbane are all zones 4-9
      Lupine, geranium, rose champion and phlox are zone 4-8
      Not sure how far down you are, but the first 4 may work. I did learn a bit about “cold” plants being planted in hot areas when I lived in Florida for a spell. Things don’t want full sun in hot areas! The roses I’d plant in Illinois’ full sun were pissed off in the full sun of Florida, but did great in 50/50 sun. The bugbane likes shade, I’d say that one is the best bet for down there.


Time to fire-up the chair-to-keyboard interface!!!
