    My favorites are...

    Cat grass: Very easy to grow from seeds and very attractive bright green foliage. Even a black thumb would succeed with this.

    Winter jasmine (jasminum polyanthum): Vine with dark green foliage and sweet smelling white/pink flowers.

    Ferns: Most every fern ^_^'

    I like anything that attracts hummingbirds. I have several fuschias that are usually loaded with big red flowers. Also in summer I grow a nice vine called Cardinal Climber. It produces scores of beautiful red trumpet shaped flowers that the hummers just love. I also grow lots of cooking herbs... basil, thyme, rosemary ect ect.

    Cheers

    Aside from my Nepenthes I grow Aroids like: Amorphophallus, Dracunculus, Arisaema & Alocasia. Under my benches in the highland and intermediate chambers I grow Slipper orchids like Paph and Phrag species and Peurothallid alliance orchids such as Dracula & Masdevallia.

    I'm partial to the weird plants and love anything that's strange either in it's leaves or flowers!

    Oh my gosh...that's a tough one. There are so many favorites. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] But orchids and passionflowers are at the top of the list. Also ferns and woodland plants. Oh and hosta! I love hosta. Poppies, bleeding heart, foxglove, cosmos, coneflowers... I should stop. The list could go on and on and on...

    I really like plants in the lily family. In particular, I like asiatic lilies and others like them, just because of the infinite number of color varieties (kind of like Sarracenia hybrids). I also like some of the lesser known members, such as Belamcanda/Pardancanda, Crocosmia, Ixia, etc...

    I also enjoy N. American native orchids. Sure, some of those you see in conservatories are unbelievable, but nothing stops you dead in your tracks like hiking through a spruce swamp in northern Wisconsin and coming face to face with a mass of showy lady slippers in full bloom.

    After much debate, I decided on Skunk Cabage because it's cool how it generates heat so it's flower can poke out of the snow first thing come spring time
