So, if you've been following along you might know that we bought and moved into this house 1 year and 3 months ago. It took us 6 months to remove the 4ft Boxwood hedge that went around the corner. Then I had the grass dug out this past August. Then it was too hot to plant. I've been spot spraying Round-Up on the Bermuda grass sprigs that sprout(it's called DEVIL grass for a reason). And since the horse manure mulch guy will not come this far, I have to pick up the truckloads myself! I've picked up and spread 4 truckloads so far. I decided it was finally time that I could begin planting!
So today I planted my Black Peppermint Willow Tree- Agonis flexuosa 'After Dark'. I bought it in a 5 gallon can about 3 years ago and potted it up to a 15 gal can(because the 15 gals are $$!). It is supposed to get only about 15 ft. I love the burgandy black foliage! And it smells deliciously like peppermint, hence the common name.
Also I've got 200 something roses, about 10 Salvia, 3 Camellia sasanqua, 3 Euphorbia cotinifolia(burgandy leaves), 3 Brugmansia(Angel's Trumpet), Chrysanthemums, Pelargoniums(Geraniums), variegated Agapanthus, Tulbaghia violacea variegated(Society Garlic) and T. fragrans(sweet smelling) 4 Osmanthus fragrans(Sweet Olive), 3 Dodonea viscoca purpurea(Purple Hopseed Bush), 16 lbs of Daffodil bulbs and many other shrubs and perennials to plant. So, that garden is coming! Yay!
Wow. Sounds great. Will the willow cause plumbing problems?ReplyDelete
