Welcome to Rooting for Ideas

My Name is Don Statham and this is my garden blog. (Seasonal Photos of Don’s Garden)

I am mad about plants, some might say obsessive! One of the points of this blog is to connect with other passionate gardeners who also like to talk about plants, garden design, garden writing and all things horticultural.

    HI DON: I AM A SENIOR CITIZEN FRIEND OF JIM H. BECAUSE OF HIM I SAW YOUR BLOG. YOUR AREA LOOKS WONDERFUL. AS YOU NO DOUBT KNOW WE HAVE HAD ATROCIOUS WEATHER. ONE DOES NOT AWAKEN ANXIOUS TO GET OUT INTO THE GARDEN ETC.
    ONE THING THIS SUMMER HAS TAUGHT ME: I AM GOING ALL OUT FOR CRAPE MYRTLE AND WHITE PHLOX NEXT SPRING. THEY ARE AS HEARTY AS CACTUS (HOWEVER I HAVE NO CACTUS). I AM DISAPPOINTED IN THE IMPATIENS. THEY ARE NOT DOING WELL AND GET DAILY SPRINKLES PLUS ARE IN THE SHADE..THEY ARE NORMALLY VERY DEPENDABLE IN OKLHOMA

      Hi Betty,

      Thanks for checking out the blog. Impatiens love water. There are so many better choices I feel for your climate. Think Native Prairie flowers such as Black Eye Susan, and Coneflower. There are so many wonderful native grasses as well as the ornamental ones such as miscanthus or pennisetum – dwarf fountain grass. Best White phlox is “David.” It’s mildew resistant! I Envy you can have Crape Myrtle!

      Best, Don

    Hi Don, how is the garden looking after the storm? And more importantly, how are the gardeners, and the dogs? In Montclair NJ we are all safe, and relatively sound. The garden is soggy, but unscathed. The lawn covered with branches, twigs, and leaves – kind’a a nice texture actually. Per
