 Lot's and lot's of Cordylines and Eucs. Amazing how hard to see they are when driving, but when you come to a stop sign and look around. Wow.

Nice Euc Tim! I love the leaves, kind of reminds me of E. niphophila.

sounds that at least in theory (if our suggestions are viable) that there may be potentially a fair amont of plants that can be grown in both places.  that said, some will likely grow better in one place than the orther or at least require somewhat different planting conditions to do well in one place compared to the other---that plant that needs full sun and warmest site here may possilby need a cooler and shadier spot there???

Hey George. Yeah, I think these climates are so opposite to one another, the real common factor is cold. Some plants happy in the South East garden might grow in a shady nook in a cool part of the garden and thrive, but here they will barely put out new growth in full sun here in the PNW. Sabals being a prime example. They seem to survive just fine, but never seem to thrive. I've seen two or three exceptions near pavement, but it's rare.

On the other hand, we can grow some fantastic Southern Hemisphere gems that are related to purely tropical plants. They can't take humidity, heat or intense sun. Or much cold for that matter.

Yeah, I think it's something more serious than that.  It is affecting all programs and I can't even get task manager to load with ctrl+alt+del.  I have automatic defrag every week as well.  Anyway, looks like I have my login info for the other board so I'll go ahead and post something over there.  The antivirus software I installed a couple months ago could be an issue, but it better not be... Grrrr.
 

I would get a thumbdrive and put Malwarebytes onto it. Then plug that into your infected (seems like you have a  malware infection) PC, then run the program. It can be found https://www.malwarebytes.org/ make sure to download the 'free' version.

Hi Keith. Trachelospermum jasminoides, Clematis armandii are a couple of climbers, and both climates grow evergreen Azaleas, but we each grow different species. There are also lot's of perrenials like Dahlias, Hedochium, Canna's and hardier Musa

I've noticed they get more deciduous when they age, in general, but I'm sure genetic variation makes a lot of difference too.  That specimen sure is a stunner.  I haven't been to the arboretum in ages and I certainly haven't had time to get over there in the spring in years.

Hey Ian. This is supposed to be 'Inca Flame' and said to be more evergreen than the much more common (in the PNW) 'longifolium'. That being said, I have no idea if it retains it's leaves here more than any other Embothrium.

But the flowers are soooo much.......... more profuse.

thanks.  IMHO, the nicest thing one can ever do with a nice picture of a (possibly) rare plant is put a name to it---otherwise some yahoo (like me, for example) will be bugging you about what the silly thing is, LOL.  yes, the PNW is probably the premier place to grow rhododendrons both species and hybrids in north america.  some of the "big leaf" or "tree" species--- arboreum, sinogrande, montroseanum, macnabianum, rex, etc.---are extremely impressive in both flower and foliage and fit in very well with "subtropical" plants.

My kids want to go back this weekend, and I barely scratched the surface as far as interesting plants go. I'll do my best to find tags, and make sure I write them down or take a pic of the tag itself. I'm the same way, if I see something cool and I no one seems to know for sure what it is.......it drives me craze.

Hey George. I didn't see a tag, but next time I'm there (maybe next weekend) I'll try and find out. If you like Rhodo's, there's a forest of them at the Arboretum. All unique and beautiful.
