Japanese Maple ”Orange Dream”

This little tree is the centrepiece of my garden. I planted it in the sunny corner of the garden but had to move it since it prefers quite a lot of shade. Today it’s placed in a spot that gets around four hours of sun in the middle of the day and it’s doing wonderfully!

The name Orange Dream describes its spring color. Later in the season it turns lime green and shines all the way though fall.

Simple summer containers

White spruce (Picea glauca ’Conica’), Sweet potato vine, three Pink Petunias

Here are my summer containers for the front entrance. The centerpiece is a White spruce (Picea glauca ’Conica’). For summer color I am using Sweet potato vine and pink Petunias.

Since the centrepiece is an evergreen it will look good in the container throughout the whole year. When fall comes I will switch the summer plants for some darker colors and in winter add Christmas lights on the White spruce.

I’ll give you updates as the season progresses.
