Fuchsia. I have some of these supposedly hardy. I had a look today and there were two or three tiny little shoots. Maybe just as well as we have frost forecast for the end of the week.

Fell by the wayside last year but back on track now.

Zebra Houseplant (Latin name Aphelandra )

In its native Brazil, Aphelandra is a woody shrub. Here, where we grow it as a flowering houseplant in 6-inch pots, it's seldom seen over a foot tall.

The picture below was taken in 2010.

Wisteria Plant

Wisteria is a vine plant that blooms in red, blue, lavender or white.
The vines twine about everything, and can reach heights up to more than 10 feet.

Wisteria can choke out neighboring plants and overwhelm structures, so yearly pruning is a necessity. Plant wisteria near a metal trellis or arbor to provide it with a place to climb and help control its growth. Planting wisteria is simple for beginner gardeners, as the plant is not overly picky.

Umbrella Plant

These evergreen and deciduous (leaf-losing) trees and shrubs have beautiful, large flowers. Some kinds bloom very early in the spring before the leaves, some bloom later in the spring and still others during the summer and early fall.

Some kinds produce pretty fruits, which are usually shaped like a cone and brightly colored. When the seeds are ripe, they are expelled from the fruit, but are held for a few days by short silky strands before falling to the ground. The hardy kinds grow wild in the Himalayas, Japan, China and North America. M. acuminata, the Cucumber Tree, is a native of North America.

The picture below was taken in 2010.

LOGANBERRIES

The loganberry is, perhaps, the supreme bramble type of berry, as it is ideal for stewing, jam- and jelly-making, bottling, canning, juice extraction and wine making. The berries can also be eaten as dessert when fully ripe, but may be too tart for some palates.

Opinions are divided as to whether the loganberry is a red-fruiting form of the common Californian blackberry, Rubus ursinus vitifolius, or a seedling from a cross between the `Red Antwerp' raspberry and the American blackberry 'Aughinburgh'. The plant appeared in 1881 in the garden of Judge J. H. Logan of Santa Cruz, California, from whom it takes its name. It has been cultivated in England since 1897.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
