I live right smack in the middle of zones 7 & 8 - we have only lived here 1 year (lived in SW Florida my whole life) so I am trying to learn what snow and ice does to flowers you spend hours planting!!! :-D Last winter the only thing that survived the winter here (1 snow, couple ice storms) were Pansies - does anyone have any other suggestions as to what I could plant with them? Like I said earlier, I am a Florida girl - use to bright beautiful colors - the pansies are great and at least gave me some color through winter but I would really like some other things as well if there are any!!! Thanks so much for any suggestions!!!
