My favourites....hmmm....
Daylilies
Clematis
Daffodils
Azaleas
Iris

it is interesting to see the varied lists depending on the zones one lives. I love Hibiscus, but can't grow them here b/c of hte cold winters.

I doubt it Mainey - even though we are rated at a 5a, I still loose some plants - our house is so open and we get bone chilling winds in the winter time so I go with plants at zone 4 and below. I have lost some plants that should never have died!!!

Jules & Maine,
I have to see if I can find them, but I had seen minature hybiscus somewhere that were said to be great for growing indoors in northern areas. I'll let you know if I can find them again. Wow It's great to now have a place to share all this cool stuff as soon as I find it!

Gloria....I so love Camillias - another one I can't grow here. Out west - in BC, where I grew up - they grow practically out of control - and so beautiful. I remember seeing them in Myrtle Beach last March

I too have seen the indoors one...and they are ever so pretty. We do have a lot of light in our home...and probably could grow them, but prefer the outdoors ones. I brought in my two pots of gerber daisies this fall and they are blooming beautifully now. They are very finicky though - if I drop the blinds during the day at all, they let me know they are not happy ;)

That's right! I knew I'd talked to you on a forum somewhere but couldn't remember which. I still can't remember which but I do remember that you visited Myrtle Beach. You came within 60 miles of me. I used to go to M-Beach quite a bit when hubby did motel renovations there.
I have a pink and a red camillia but I want allllll the colors. Windsor Plantation in Georgetown, SC has them in all shades from white to deep scarlet red. I've tried to do cuttings from those and failed. I thought I had a seedling one time but it turned out to be a Magnolia tree..which is now 6 foot and growing in my back yard..

There is no way I can pick 5, my favorites change from day to day lol

Lilacs always make the top 5 though and then I like iris's, wisteria, columbine and hyacinth bean.
