Another Matcha Ball Ash Leaf Spirea Shrub Planted - By Astilbes - November 2023

I posted the details and a photo of planting a Matcha Ball Ash Leaf Spirea shrub in the front porch beds in mid-October.  When I planted that one, I also...planted a second one:  but in back.  I decided to tuck it in the 'kitchen window curved bed', sort-of by where my bird-feeding pole lives.  

That bed has some good foliage and good texture contrasts going on - the Amsonia, Oakleaf Hydrangeas and Astilbes create a nice combination.  This small-size (dare I saw dwarf) fern-like shrub adds a pop of color (yellow/chartreuse) and some lightness of foliage to this spot.

The shrub is already showing some buds on the limbs - that I presume are set of next year. never can tell what kind of stress these nursery plants go through that might alter their normal growth cycle.  

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 49 new plants.  3 new via division.  7 Trees.  52 total for 2023 #FallPlanting.  21 of them are groundcover plants.  Five sedums.
