night and day...and some lessons learned

P.J._in_MDMay 26, 2012

literally, here are some night and day shots.

front day:

front night:

I know some don't appreciate the potted plants on this board but I live in a cool climate and have to compromise. The spanish moss is growing very fast the last couple weeks.

Day:

Night:

top view from the deck:

trachy (fence 6' tall). No protection last winter:

waggie (brick for scale). Minimal to no protection in 4 winters:

so my hibiscus have appeared mangled and disfigured. Lesson learned: when spraying weedicide, apparently hibiscus doesn't like it.


So if a hibiscus sends up a few single tall stalks, can they be cut to promote wide growth or bushiness?

Thanks for looking.

House looks really good. You need to come down here and do something with my grass! Your waggie looks great. If mine ever starts growing I will plant it somewhere.
