Two Malus 'Sutyzam' - Sugar Tyme Crabapple Trees Planted - Pre-Espalier - September 2021
This past weekend, our next door neighbors had a party on their back patio. It was a really nice time (aside from a sting...) with a lot of great people. At the party, I found myself sitting in one of their Adirondack chairs and facing my own house. And I couldn't help but be struck by this big, blank wall staring back at me:
SUGAR TYME has excellent disease resistance.
61 trees planted/5 growing seasons = 12.2 trees on average planted each season.
40 trees alive/5 growing seasons = 8 trees on average survive each season.
1. Flowering Pear in backyard on north side.
3. Japanese flowering cherry
4 and 5: 2 Lindens that I espalier'd and placed by the south fence line near our kitchen windows.
7. Nat's Saucer Magnolia in our front yard
2018 (17 planted. 6 Dead):
14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21. These Frans Fontaine Hornbeams.
22. A replacement Chanticleer Pear tree (3" caliper) out front by our garage
25. Our replanted/replacement Dawn Redwood. Same spot as the first.
26. This teeny-tiny Bald Cypress that I planted in the front yard, in between our driveway and our neighbor to the north.
33. My new Weeping White Spruce that will only grow about 4' wide placed near the fence line alongside the espalier'd Lindens.
46. A small Northern Red Oak tree - our first Oak tree planted.
47. A 'decapitated' Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud that I planted on a whim.
49. A tall(ish) London Plane tree that suffered some transplant and frost shock, but seemed to recover.
1. [Using the word "ditch" is a bit extreme here. It is more like a little depression - where they can ensure that you keep most of your surface rainwater on your own property.]↩
