a rational and reasonable attitude. that said, many of us (sometimes yours truly) have an irrational and unreasonable love for our plants and the thought of losing often rather rare and expensive stuff not easily replaced can lead us to employ "heroic life-support" to keep our "babies" from an often cruel and capricious "mother nature". nevertheless, as you say, our gardens are often "jam packed with too many plants" and sometimes to save both sanity and bank accounts we can and should look seriously as those "interesting, but NON-marginal" plants to be an important part of our landscape as possible replacements for plants which we ultimately cannot grow well and long-term.
