Front yard sunflowers look great and will bring in the birds.

Really nice collection! It's great that so many things came back :).

If you don't mind my asking, which of your plants died back? I'm particularly curious about your Eugenias; how did your pitangatuba and E. Florida manage?

Loving that Klip dagga such a wild Dr Seuss looking plant! I have Leonotis leonurus or lions tail and it has yet to flower for me!

In your zone Indian jujube won't flower nor fruit. At the most it may form a stunted bush loaded with sharp curved spines! But your Sherwood jujube ( Ziziphus jujuba chinensis ) will flower and fruit this year. Thin 75% of the young fruits the first year to have strong roots. Watch for sucker plants coming from the roots around 8' radius from the trunk and go on trimming them as soon as they show up.
