But what would a plant list be if their incomplete


  • Hakone Grass
  • Lady Fern
  • Sedum Sunsparkler
  • Cornus Canadensis (bunchberry)
  • Arborvitae North Pole
  • Rasberry Anne Fall bearing
  • Rasberry Joan J Fall bearing
  • Rasberry Latham Summer
  • Crabapple Tree Malus Transitoria Royal Raindrops

Aureola Hakonechloa macra  – Japanese forest grass.  The variety has a yellow varigation.  Missouri Botanical Gardens says it’s “Best grown in humusy, consistently moist, well-drained soils in part shade.”  So absolutely nothing like the soil below the apple tree 🙂  I wonder if I can import the stuff?   What is humus?

Hanoke Grass might be a dry shade challenge.

Cornus Canadensis


Cornus Candensis is a Colorado Native that will act as a groundcover in the back bad.
Arbovitae purchased when its less than 6 inches tall. Perhaps this is the size necessary to get them to establish.


Crabapple Tree Malus Transitoria Royal Raindrops

This glossy leaved beauty will replace the tree cut by the neighbor and will hopefully provide privacy from that house.


Silky Thread Grass

Planted among happy lavenders this fine bladed grass will add a beautiful yellow green.
