Garden Design Update: Greeting New Plants
I never thought I cared much for Chamaecyparis, as a general rule, but I do like this one, and think it is a great addition to the garden. I probably wouldn’t have planted something like this on my own, so I’m glad the garden designer pushed me a little to think again about this genus of shrubs and give one or more a try.
When the garden designer returns early next week to put the finishing touches on the front garden and start marking beds in the back garden, I’m sure she’ll make formal introductions including Genus, species, and variety.
In the meantime, I’ll continue to keep it watered and get to know it better, along with other new plants in the garden.
Hi, Kerria japonica ‘Alba’!
Greetings, Heuchera villosa ‘Caramel’!
Hello, other Chamaecyparis!
Good morning, Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah'.
Yes, the garden designer even convinced me to plant Panicum, switch grass.
Will wonders never cease?
