Planting and potting up

I planted the new Hatsushimo Hibiscus in the Abelias bed, the Tor Spirea by the back garden path and potted up 2 Ardisias, Hakuokan and Amanogawa. I also potted up a cutting of Tibouchina that Betty gave me and an Osmanthus that Nurseries Caroliniana gave me.

Planted the Eupatorium fern-like leaf, the variegated Kerria, Fred's Upright Boxwood and potted up the Thujopsis to go in a pot by the front hose bib.


Potted up the Cape Honeysuckle and Mandevilla for winter. Also tried to pot up the Panama Red Hibiscus - we'll see.
