What grows with little maintenance
I need to plant more shrubs. Have planted maybe 15 in the past two years. Some are good and some we lost (oak leaf Hydrangea). Now I need more. The kind that love neglect. You know the ones, plant them and forget them. Bridal Wreath, Hollies, Pittosporum, Crepe Myrtle, Indian Hawthorn, Nandina and Cestrum all do well here. Maybe that will give you a clue.
Small trees would be good. As we all know, plants are expensive and when they die you are sad for the plant and your pocket book. I am slowly learning to do research instead of saying "Hey, that"s pretty, I will take it."
The area I am looking at now will get sun all day or sun all afternoon depending on how close to the house it is.I have about a 40' X 30' so lots of plants and lots of money. As always your ideas are appreciated. I want this thick with plants so fast growing is a good thing and some evergreen is good as well as tall. Thanks to all. N
