Re: hate to talk about gardening


Kathy,
I have a Forest Pansy Redbud, but it is still very young.  I love the color
on the new growth... it is very much like the 'Diablo' ninebark, only more
shiny.
I have seen a Forest Pansy Redbud of a friends that is probably about 15-20
years old... absolutely beautiful.  In fact that is why I had to have one.
I love to use foliage color more instead of counting on flower color.  You
can have color that was for  all the seasons.
Patricia
zone 6b
where we are getting new snow...  probably up to 3 inches now... and still
snowing!
