I am curious about the different gardens that all you gardeners write about. Can't we identify our locations, roughly, so as to make the discussions clearer? I just read a post about "Whirlwind, " a Japanese anemone, and whether or not it can handle the winter. One gardener responded by complaining that it's a pest. I have Japanese anemones flourishing in my Virginia garden, and yes, they are quite "vigorous". But maybe they aren't in colder climates? Knowing each gardener's zone would enhance the discussions.
