My title is Nick Bresso. I reside in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, which is simply north of Detroit. My backyard is in Zone 6a. We moved to our house 4 years in the past and began with a clean slate for the backyard.
Low Scape Mound aronia (Aronia melanocarpa, Zones 3–9), golden yew (Taxus, Zones 4–7), and ‘Emerald Gaiety’ euonymus (Euonymus fortunei ‘Emerald Gaiety’, Zones 5–8) have all executed effectively in dry soil below an enormous pine.
Hosta ‘June’ (Zones 2–9) and ‘Summer time Gold’ variegated dogwood (Cornus kousa ‘Summer time Gold’, Zones 4–8) swap colours within the fall. Throughout the summer time, the dogwood has inexperienced leaves edged with yellow, and the hosta has inexperienced leaves with gold facilities. As you possibly can see, within the fall the dogwood turns pink and white, and the hosta turns gold and white.
