Kassandra

Just planted this one at the cottage this summer, and so far it is really pleasing me. It has a nice matt surface, pretty coloured new growth, and a simple leaf shape. It doesn't look just like Kassandra on some of the grower websites, so who knows. But it suits my 'quiet' cottage garden style.

It's summer. My Caramel and Southern Comfort are mostly green right now, it's just what they do. In the autumn they color up a bit more but are their most colorful in the spring with the new growth. Kassandra will most likely do the same. Nice healthy plant you have. I like the little shrub next to it. It's so cute.

That little guy is a 'True Dwarf Hinoki Cypress'. I don't collect conifers (yet!) but my husband likes to entertain himself while I shop for heuchs and hostas, so this was his addition to the shopping cart. (It's like telling a kid he can have a treat if he is good while mommy shops!!)
