|I trialed it in this spot for about a week by digging the hole and placing the shrub still in its pot in the hole. I left it there just to see what I thought about it in the landscape.|
I'm always looking for flowering shrubs for my shrub border. Azaleas are tough here, so I typically stay away from them, but I am hearing of some good gardeners having some successes with particular cultivars so I've been trying to up my game. I have a couple azalea mollis and a PJM, and some unnamed species. 'Rosebud' joins this group. I am hoping it is not deciduous like mollis and evergreen like the others, but I honestly don't know at this point. I realized with my extended winter this years, I just don't want to see through my primarily deciduous shrub and tree border. The neighbor adjacent to me there has a ridiculously hoarder/trashy/junky run-down property, the blight of our particularly nice neighborhood.
So what plants do you need to make confessions about this spring?
