2nd Bird's Nest Spruce - In Conifer Garden - November 2023.

Today marks me getting pretty close to the final conifer that I planted in my Fall Planting Spring of October 2023.  It features a second (new) Bird's Nest Spruce (3rd overall with one in the back) and is planted in the new part of the Conifer Garden down by the sidewalk.  Same story as the previous one - a dwarf, low-to-the-ground conifer that tolerates sun and - when established - is drought tolerant.  This one is a 1# small shrub, like the others have been.  

I planted this in mid-October, but posting it in early November 2023. 

My 2023 Fall Planting List - so far - includes a number of new and divided plants.  

Now up to 43 new plants.  3 new via division.  7 Trees.  46 total for 2023 #FallPlanting.  21 of them are groundcover plants.  Five sedums.

As for my #1 2023 item on the list - planting evergreens.  How have I done on that?

According to my late-summer checkin post, I have planted 19 evergreens in 2023:  5 boxwoods in front, 13 boxwoods in back and a columnar scotch pine tree.  That tree has died, however.  Add the Baby Blue Spruce tree from this past week and I'm up to 20 evergreens (so far) in 2023.  With this Bird's Nest Spruce, that's 21 total.  Two Weeping Norway Spruce - that's 22 and 23 for 2023.  The Montrose Charm makes 24.  This Baby Blue Spruce (#2) is 25.  The 3rd Baby Blue Spruce is 26 evergreens for 2023. Golden Mop Cypress is 27.  First Blue Star Juniper is 28 - planted by the back stoop.  2nd Blue Star is 29.   This 2nd Bird's Nest Spruce (3rd overall) makes an even 30 for 2023.
