- Three hybrid tea roses
- Variety unknown, these were there when we bought the house. I moved these from the edge of the driveway where they were interfering with entering/exiting vehicles. Why one of the previous homeowners thought this a good site for roses, I have no idea. Two of them had some massive tap roots and were really hard to pry up out of the ground. This type of rose does not have a root ball so I watered them in very, very well and will continue to water them once in a while until they re-establish.
- Three winterberry hollies.
- two dwarf females 'Red Sprite', and one male 'Jim Dandy' which I was told is the pollinator for those.
- Andromeda 'Dorothy Wycoff'
- this was suffering in the Echinacea bed, it was far too exposed and may not have been receiving enough sun. It's now living up next to a retaining wall and the edge of my vegetable garden to help shield it from the wind. It is also now receiving full sun.
Early fall is a good time to hit up the nurseries for 25-50% off perennial shrubs and trees. There is pretty much enough time in Zone 6 for the plants to establish themselves before winter's grip.
