  1. Beautiful pinks! Are the rain lilies volunteers or bulbs you planted? And I didn't realize that American Beautyberry had blooms: so delicate.

    1. I planted a few of the bulbs, but they have multiplied to about four times the original number.

  4. I really like that Chinese Indigo. Does it over winter well here?

    1. I've had it at least three years, so it's been though both mild and severe winters. It's deciduous, so it's winter dormant - but has never died back to the ground (maybe some minor stem die-back).
