  1. I love this post that you make about the five favorite plants! Thank you for taking the time. We are hoping for two weeks in England this summer only so we can stay at gravetye primarily.

  2. Tom, is S Phyllis Fancy hardy with you? Do you bring yours in? The one you gave me a couple of years ago has thrived. I have taken cuttings. Julie Coley

  3. Sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) made the list! That is rad! It is a favorite here too, because we do not get so much reliable autumn foliar color in our mild climate. I would not expect it to get as much attention where there is so much color in autumn.
