More ideas for Proctor Entrance
So here's some more ideas along same vane for Proctor Entrance outside Sue's windows.
Some of this coloration will never occur together unless we get lucky. End of August? Because the big bush in background is burning bush and it's already established and it's green until fall when it turns this brilliant red. It's one of my favorite plants come September-October. Also the smaller red bush here is a purple smoke tree that would have to be kept pruned down to bush size along with the willow I'm told can be kept that way as well. That idea again came from http://www.barkandbloom.com/. We already have a lot of echinacea at the island between the drop off drive and parking lot so this would tie it together but I don't like too much since half the year it looks pretty straggly. Also the reddish colored Autumn Joy Sedum I think would be that color later summer but then changes to more bronze when that bush is red. Too bad we can't get all the red's together BUT we can get some red always there and that's how it should be when you're planting for a REDHEAD!!!!
