what she's asking for. The more you can learn about general vegetation, the better prepared you will be for requests like hers. And, the more knowledgeable you are, the more likely your customers are to brag to their friends how very smart you are.

so i finally meet the lovely kate. we do mostly lawnmowing, irrigation, tractor and hardscapes. ive learned a lot about plants and trees, but its only once every 2 years i get asked to plant flowers.

she was wanting a secretia and dragon leaf bagonia. i know what a bagonia is and one nursery said they could special order it. the secretia nobodys heard of and i can only find goth websites when i search it.

i need something for a big appartment community in arkansas.

ill post pics.

Here you go. I had to think about it. It's a common tropical ground cover.

Go to the link and then 'images'. You'll recognize it immediately.
