Re: Some recent photos of zone pusheritis.
One of the things I miss about this board a decade ago when participation was so much higher is how the people here talked about not only zone pushing, but also growing bulletproof plants that look tropical or subtropical. Things like Aucuba, large-leaf and trunking Yuccas, large-leaf Cherry Laurels, Camellias, etc.
I used to pay no mind to Yuccas until all of Jim Kelly's posts here. He got me into them. One of my favorite genuses (geni?).
I miss the old days. Even during the flame wars, there was still so much knowledge flying back and forth.
