We just moved to Ocala Florida area and I am looking for Ylang Ylang,Pakalana vine or Tonkin cuepeo, Plumeria,Michelia Champaca,Fragrant Ixora Odorada,Tahian Gardenia Tiare or Gardenia tatenquse,Fragea Fragens,Iochroma cynaneum, Leptodermis oblonga,Lady of night Brunfesia americana,Easter lily vine ( Beaumontia), Gardenias veitchii,remyi,tiare,jasmoide and Chuck Hayes,Jasmines nudiflorum,confederate star, and any other highly fragrant plants. Does anyone know if Viola Ordorada can be grown here. Also looking for various cactus and unusual plants for inside and out. some I had years ago were ponytail, Rosary plant, spider plant that I had in my house hanging. Any places I can order from or members offering to sell or give away would be great, I will see what is in the new home we bought and list cuttings etc for members to have it may take me a couple weeks to list as we have to shop for furniture.
Thanks Cathy Anderson
Your local big box store may carry many of those as well. Kay what has your exp been? I know when I was sadly down last Aug for my grandmothers funeral - I found for diff plants that I'd typically have to mail order for $3 a piece at a FL Walmart
I know this is an old-ish thread and I don't know if cathy56 is still following it, but I'd do some homework on some of those--I'm not super familiar with the different areas of FL, but if Ocala is really in zone 9a a few of those plants may have trouble with the winters unless they're brought indoors or put in a greenhouse.
