Editing a Mixed Border Part II

We replaced the overgrown Picea pungens 'Glauca Globosa' with  Picea pungens 'Glauca Globosa Nana'.  It supposed to have half the growth rate of Picea pungens 'Glauca Globosa'. If that is true it will overgrow its spot in the garden in 28 years rather than 14 years. I hope I am around to see the next replacement.

Our Viburnum sargentii 'Onondaga' had all the bark girdled by mice 360 degrees around this year and was also replaced. Maude found a wonderful, and very heavy, specimen. No one will ever know what happened; all in a days work for public gardeners.


  1. Hello Michael!
    I too hope you'll be around for many years to come to see your mixed border replenished.
    I really like the stone wall it's set against. It almost begs for effusive company.

  2. I felt the same way about that wall, Faisal. It was just calling for a garden.
