    I am from the north and have killed many flowering plants since moving to Florida. We leave on vacation and things seem to die quickly even when we have had rain. Any suggestions?

    Hi Jackie — In your hardiness zone, it is imperative to either plant very tough, drought-tolerant plants or to have someone watering your garden regularly while you are away. Here is a link to our drought-tolerant perennials: http://www.americanmeadows.com/perennials#advantages_show_all=true&soil_type=drought_dry_soil&zones=9&gan_data=true
