@thehardygardener - Good morning Aly, this is a gorgeous plant! Do you think this variety would grow in southern US (zone 9)? Other types do very well here, but I've never seen this one. Also, I commend your unselfish time devoted to your friend. The world could use more of you! Thanks! 🌴🌺🐾

@thehardygardener - Thanks for letting me know. How difficult would it be for you to overnight me some cuttings? (When it's ready). I'll pay any expenses & have water waiting. I'm glad this therapeutic work is helping you, too, as well as giving your friend some hope. I know how hope feels when you are feeling desolate about your situation. Again, you are doing a wonderful thing. 🌴🌺🐾

@thehardygardener - Oh, you're probably right. I didn't think about it crossing borders & all that would entail. Never mind. I'll keep looking over here. Thanks anyway. At least I know it's name, thanks to you. I don't know the rules either, except friends that have brought food from Europe have had a hard time. So please don't worry about it. I'll find it & let you know when I do. :-) 🌴🌺🐾

@thehardygardener - No worries, I'm sure it's here somewhere! With hurricane season on, it's a bit wet for planting, anyway. I'll find it, & when I do, I'll come & leave a pup on your door step. But you have to let me sit in on a "sitting down" therapeutic session. Deal?? 🐲🌴🌺🐾🐬🙋

@thehardygardener - Thanks for your concern, Aly, & I promise to be safe. We got Harvey's tail brush, but no where near the likes of what those poor people in Houston got. They're having a rough go of it. My situation is that when hurricanes get into the partially enclosed Gulf area, they tend to spread out & give everyone a soggy day or 2, depending where they're headed. We don't often get direct hits because of how the land is formed in our area. I usually pack up the cats & go elsewhere.
