please recommend conifer for poor drainage
I have a garden bed that seems to retain water at a depth of about 2 feet and downward. I am suspecting that the Arizona cypress that grew and just died in the middle of the bed, fell victim to poor drainage. Other things in the same bed Â viburnum pragense, delphiniums, yarrows, clematis, roses Â grow wonderfully.
I want to plant another conifer in the same spot. However, the summer air in my yard has already proven to be too dry in summer for such as Cryptomerias, while that particular bed has now proven to be too wet in winter either for cypress or juniper. I'd like to try an Atlas cedar. But they cost so darn much, I thought I'd better seek advice from other knowledgeable gardeners before buying it. Or better yet, what conifers do any of you recommend for my rather strange air/soil conditions.
