Fire Pit Boundary Shrub Exploration - April 2022
Today marks the fourth in the running series of exploration posts around how I am thinking and planning for shrubs this season. Getting going on shrubs - both deciduous and evergreen - is my #1 priority for this growing season and I've taken the past few posts to talk thru - on the blog - my thoughts.
The three previous beds that I walked thru are:1. A 20' area where I need to replace some lilacs with an evergreen layer and three Tardiva Hydrangeas.
2. An adjacent spot that calls for a similar (but different) evergreen layer fronted by three dwarf Little Lime Hydrangeas that are planted in a way to NOT foreclose a potential path.
3. The area that lays at the feet of the pair of Greenspire Linden trees along our fence line close to our patio that calls for some formal evergreens.
- Three upright evergreens (Yews, Thujas, Hemlocks)
- Three other upright evergreens (different ones from above)
- Three Tardiva Hydrangeas
- Three Little Lime Hydrangeas
- Two to three upright Yews. My plan is to transplant two small Hicks upright Yews here in addition.
- A Climbing Hydrangea
- A pair of Jetstream Oakleaf Hydrangeas
