Christoper2 - I cannot believe you grow them outside - we went down to -12 last two winters! Tried overwintering in my unheated greenhouse but even though well wrapped up etc. they rotted off. In regard to unusual plants - I try to grow things my visitors (I open under the NGS scheme) would not normally see. Rehmannia, Asarum Splendem, Nicandra, Liriope Muscari, "Spotty Dotty", Eucomis etc. etc. Also tried a lovely petunia called "Pretty Much Picasso" this year. They say you can overwinter it but the plant gave up the ghost and so did the cuttings! I shall try again next year.
