Hi again! It seems this group has been really quiet for a long time! Well I just joined and I want to make a beautiful garden to enjoy in my beautiful pug dress!  I am not great at it, pretty new, so I would like to know what your favorite plant is in your garden, or favorite anywhere, and why?  I love rose trees, more than bushes. They are beautifully shaped, graceful, more statuesque, with the colorful roses all together at the top like a bouquet.  The "pin-up" of the garden!  I have about 7.  They seem to do better than the bush kind.  I have 3 that keep getting these brown crispy leaves.  I take them off, I don't know if I am supposed to, they're just dying leaves.  Now let's hear your thoughts!

i guess being a gardener i have many plants i would call favorites but i would have to say i most enjoy growing  hydrangeas the most       they did go out of fashion for a long  wile but now are enjoying a return    also the trade has responded with lots of new and better varietys      in my last garden i grew 72 varietys     and woul love to share some pictures of them if you like    happy gardening  Cathy  

Wow, thank you so much for your reply!  So you are a seasoned gardener?  I do so love hydrangeas, the blues and purples, but they look really hard to grow and maintain. I know I would kill them, I won't even try. I love the look of big bouquets of hydrangeas in the house. I have seen some that were perfectly preserved, and looked just cut, and would stay that way! I saw it on-line, so I don't know how it would look like in person.  I want to buy some soon if I could find a good place that sells them.  It boggles my mind that there are so many varieties! 72, my gosh!  Your garden must be huge! Yes, please share some photos.  I live in Southern CA, and we have had several heat waves.  Last few days it has been 102 to 104 here in La Habra.  I was so mad because last year it stayed hot even into January, with only a few cool days.  We were robbed of a fall and winter. Is this going to be the pattern from now on?  I am really worried, because I just hate the heat!  Have a good weekend!  Ruth
