In 2018 I decided to replace the brown, dying conifers in our front porch pots with something more well suited to shade. So I picked up these columnar yews hoping they would perform a little better. Unfortunately, although they are columnar and seems to like their homes, they have a bit of an odd open habit so I may need to find a new home for them in the ground.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
