Need some advice for aroids in outdoor condition
From: sfhatheway at yahoo.com (Sheldon Hatheway) on 2008.02.23 at 18:46:53(17094)|
Here in Canby, OR, USA, in a similar zone as yours, we successfully grow Dracunculus vulgaris and Arum italicum (in addition to the ones you mentioned) in the ground all year. They do just fine with a little winter mulch if it gets below 20F. Both of these are available from most of the larger mail-order nurseries. A Google search will give you more leads than you could ever look at in a normal lifetime. We also grow a number of hardy orchids outside: Bletilla, Pleione, Calanthe, Dactylorhiza, Roscoea, Spiranthes, etc. Some of these do well in full sun, and some appreciate a little light shade during the hot summer afternoons.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Need some advice for aroids in outdoor condition climate zone 7
I would like to put some aroids in outdoor condition in the garden. I
am in a climate zone 7, with hot summer and severe winter (around -10?C
in average to the lower level). What could you advice me as species ? I
have retained some ones but it is just to be sure (Arisaema sp.,
Typhonium sp., Symplocarpus sp. are the genus I have for example. I
don't write the species because the list is long). And to finish, how
or where can I found some specimens adapted in culture outdoor ?
Thanks a lot for your help

Franck, you could always try some of the more tropical genera like
Colocasia, Alocasia and Remusatia. All have a few species that can overwinter
underground in zone 7. Also a few of the Amorphophallus and I even know a few people
who over winter Philodendron bippenatifidum in zone 7. Those will dieback to
the ground every winter but given a well drained spot will come back with
full force in spring.
Where are you located?

> Hallo Franck, hallo all,
> I am enthusiasticly cultivating a wide range of aroids - mainly tropical
foliage plants of alocasia, anthurium, monstera, philodendron and others -
in greenhouses in Vienna, Austria. As I privately own a big garden with a
couple of huge, old trees, I have some years ago started to transfer some
of my most beautiful "indoor aroids" outside from middle of May to the end
f September. For that I dig a hole in the ground, fill the bottom of the
hole with gravel (for running off excess waters) and place the pots in it.
I even do that with climbing species, which than cling on tree trunks, to
be cut in autumn (it is always recommendable to cut back climbing
aroids...). Then the plants go back to the garden room or in the living
area indoors to overwinter. The only requirement is, to have a spot in the
garden, where the plants are protected from direct sunlight and strong
winds. It is amusing, how the plants appreciate this "open air summer
vacation". Most of them develop surprising new growth.
> As a journalist I also have published that idea and have got a lot of
response. Of course it always was my goal to turn my zone 6 garden into a
tropical paradise in summer. My aroids allow an almost unlimited creativity
in exotic combinations.
> I do not know, if you, Franck, only want to grow hardy aroids in your
garden in permanence, or if you are interested to "stage" a temporary
> Maybe this is also an idea for other aroiders in zones 8,7,6,5.....
> I have to try to put some of my pictures, taken in my garden, in this
forum, - so far anybody is interested.
