Planting and transplanting
Planted the Hursley Park Bald Cypress next to the contorted tea by the garage. Planted Don Egolf Redbud on the right property line near the Little Gem Magnolia. Moved the Ilex glabra 'Nigra' between the Emerald Snow and Ever Red Loropetalums and moved the August Beauty Gardenia from next to the Willow to a spot between the Swift Creek Privet and Suwanee Elf Wax Myrtle. Then planted the Conoy Viburnum next to the Willow. Planted Midnight Wine Weigela, Deutzia Chardonnay Pearls and Amsonia tabernaemontana near the croquet lawn and the bluebird house. Potted up the Ogon Spirea near the golf course which was languishing and planted a White Ball Buddleia in its place. Moved the Willowwood Kalmia from near the screen porch to the front next to the Fringetree. Moved the center Clinopodium from the edge of the croquet lawn to behind the Wisteria and planted a Harbour Belle Nandina in its place. Moved the giant elephant ears and cannas from inside the pool fence and planted a Coal Miner Colocasia in its place.
