Popular in the Southeast: Peony
Deborah Harrison of Habersham Gardens (habershamgardens.com) in Atlanta says the peony is this year's dark horse favorite. "For sheer luxury, it is the most beautiful plant on the planet and people are willing to baby it to keep it happy."
Most tender ferns can be grown outdoors in sheltered, mild-climate gardens. In colder regions, they should be moved indoors to protect foliage.
