The inherited hydrangea grounds a newly expanding garden, 2021.
The western facing gardens have been steadily expanding since 2019, with the largest expansion yet made in July 2021 (pictured right). While still under 'construction' the ground work has been laid to create a slightly more formal appearance at the front of our home.
Four young red cedar tree cultivars (Juniperus Virginiana) were planted along with three 'Jetstream' Oakleaf Hydrangeas (Hydrangea Quercifolia). These native species will perform as foundation plants allowing the few inherited shrubs we acquired with the property including a bigleaf hydrangea and three rose bushes to act as accents. Among the natives introduced here are a three charming pale yellow Potentilla plants.
Looking forward to Spring 2022, my goal is to continue to finesse the garden by finding appropriate native ground covers, and then simply to enjoy watching this newly developed garden grow.
