After the cold-tender Dahlias and Hibiscus were cut down, a huge gap in my front yard garden plan revealed itself.
Right there in the middle, where the evergreen Pieris used to be, and where now sits an opportunistic violet, is the space begging for a tall, narrow plant.The Pieris is now is a shady spot, where it is much happier, even sporting buds for spring's blooms.
The new plant does not have to be evergreen, but it does need winter interest if not, so maybe a beauty berry:
But I have been wanting a deciduous native holly, so that sounds like a good plan. I'll just have to cringe when I see the empty space until early spring.
