The Survivors


One of the edicts of the Automatic Garden, is to grow tough plants that come back or reseed every year. Here are a few of toughest that survived two freezes without a bit of burn.  Above is a Mexican Hat.


This Bartram’s Oenothera grandiflora hasn’t missed a beat.  It germinated last summer and has just sat and not grown much.  The fungus has found it though.


The Ligularia was not fazed at all.  It is under some tree limbs that may have helped.


Peruvian Lilies are considered invasive by some.  In other words, a darn good hardy plant!


This Toad Lily really seemed to like the cold.  It wasn’t even noticeable a few weeks ago and some critter usually eats most of it.


A happy surprise from this blooming violet.  It will be interesting to see which plants re-emerge from their frozen foliage.  It will be a true test to see the plants that are truly worthy of the Automatic Garden.
