Adding New Plants (Japanese Pieris) and Checking Up on Old Plants
Well, the rhododendron has died. Well, it’s been dead, but I’m finally sending it on its way.
In its place, though, I got these new plants. Shade tolerant. Evergreen. Just different. These are called Japanese Pieris or Mountain Fire. It’s a spring bloomer that matures at six to eight feet tall, assuming it has the space to grow. I just hope they fare better in the corner than the rhododendron did.
The other rhododendrons are doing well. New leaves have already spouted with more on the way.
While putting up the reed fence, I’ve been tearing out what looks like just a weedy vine. And then the flowers bloomed. I kind of like them.
