    Cool! I have these bare root in my bog area and in the ground at the edges. I like your window screen idea. Have you done it with any other plants?

    Also another note, I have Koi so I put all my plants in a basket heavily weighed with rocks..... I love them but they will destroy any plant even though they don't eat it just for the fun of it

    Yes ma'am. That's what someone said about my bearded irises that I planted a few feet away from my pond!

    Nope - Lobelia cardinalis. It's gorgeous - they say it's the truest red flower. And hummingbirds love it.

    (Not my picture - stole it off the internet!)

    Thing is here we have to be careful because of longer growing season .We can go until late November and still mow the grass in December .Then we start back up in March .So some plants can get out of hand here .Even though here I have had no rain for way over a month we have had high humidity (above 87 % ) grass is not suffering because of heavy dew each morning also
