Ceanothus griseus var. horizontalis 'Diamond Heights'
Died one winter, likely due to freezing temps.
Killed by a weed-wacker during fall cleanup.
Leucothoe fontanesiana 'Nana'
One of my first plants. Being a beginning gardener I think I failed to properly open and water the compacted rootball.
Acer palmatum 'Emperor I'
This beautiful tree up and died back to within 3 inches of the soil line. I don’t know why, but just in case I replaced it with a completely different tree, a Tricolor birch.
Thuja occidentalis 'Forever Goldy'
This was in a big pot that I decided weighed too much to go back up on the deck after the remodel. It was also a little rangy, not getting enough sun to maintain an attractive shape. So it went into the compost heap!
