2009 Halloween Garden plans


Black Bat Flower

Queen Red Lime Zinnia
I’m going to try a Halloween garden AGAIN this year. Last year my garden was looking great then we adopted our Black lab puppy Elvira and she destroyed each plant!

This year I hope Elvira will learn to stay out of the garden (She is very smart). I have ordered some NEW Zinnia’s from Johnnyseeds.com “Queen Red Lime” they are really cool. I want to add a couple of “Black Bat Flowers” but they are really expensive 16.95 each. I’ll keep everyone posted on how the Halloween garden designing goes.

Wow, Awesome! I LOVE the look of that Black Bat Flower, its Wonderful. Ive never heard of it before.

I wonder how it would do in very hot sunny Arizona!

I think it likes shade...I have a full sun flower garden, so it would not like my house. The Gothic Tea House in Saint Joseph, Missouri is going to plant some, I'll keep you posted on how they grow.
