I was loathe to plant this after hating and ripping out all the other laurels in our garden, but I gave up trying to find an evergreen shrub that would grow in the shady spot up against the back fence. So I did it. Will I regret it? Probably, unless we move house in the next 3 years!
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!
