First season of a simple #shrub installation alongside a client's #rental home.
I designed and planted #Rhododendron with some very pretty #groundcover#Syberian#Cypress (Celtic Pride) that will fill in the ground space over time.
I learned a phrase this year to explain the growth pattern of new plantings: "sleep, creep, leap." Meaning that in the first year of planting, the plants seem to "sleep" or not grow much at all. The second year they grow just a little bit, they "creep." And the third year is when you notice significant growth, they "leap."
