This is a tag from one of the 3 holly bushes we planted in the garden almost ten years ago.
Note how tall the holly bush is suppose to get. Eight feet tall.
One of the holly bushes died a number of years ago.
The primrose has surrounded the remaining two holly bushes.
But, I ask you, do these look eight feet tall?
I need to include the holly bushes on the list of crispy plants in the garden after this year's heat.
It is time for the holly bushes to leave. I will let go of the dream of making Christmas decorations with them. Later this fall or early next spring, this area will be dug up and new plants will get the space. I'm already dreaming of tall flowering plants. Maybe some joe pye weed, bee balm or phlox. Any suggestions? The primrose will likely still be in the area too.
