Hi - New Theme Garden all plants that have a relationship to Ireland, irish, St Patrick, in the name of the plant for a zone 6 garden that's essentially full sun.

I have; bells of Ireland, Irish Moss, St. Patrick™ Hybrid Tea Rose, IRISH EYES Glorisa Daisy, Bells of Ireland, Copper Queen Daffodil (developed on the coast of Ireland), Irish Gold Rose Hybrid Tea and Wild Irish Rose. I am not trying to limit color or height but needs something to do with theme. any suggestions?

Isn't oxalis a clover? What's more Irish than clover? I was given some last summer and was told that it looks really nice in a pot. I'm going to try it!

Wow, all realy great links. that garden so close to the ocean must be a real challenge. Mostly I am [U]not [/U]looking to make a traditional Irish garden, I am looking for plants with it in their names.

Actually you are very close. Oxalis are more commonly known as Shamrocks and would fit perfectly in an Irish garden but I am not sure if they are a zone 6 perenial. I zone 5 I have to dig them and store them for the winter (they are actually a tiny bulb).

I probably have this one, Garden Hardy Pink, zone 5-10. They are cute in pots, but they need shade. A nice substitute for impatiens maybe.
