Our February Landscape is Blooming Big Time!

February 21, 2018

One of the benefits of moving to Georgia is we can now grow plants that would not make it where we used to live in Ohio (we were primarily zone 5 however we were successful with some plants that were only hardy to zone 6). Here are a couple of shots of our blooming shrubs in our February landscape.

Camillia blog

Our Camellia is outstanding this year (grows best in zone 7 to 10).

Edgeworthia

Edgeworthia chrysantha (also known as Paperbush) grows best in zone 7 to 9.   This shrub is a relatively problem free option for partly shaded areas and some good news: deer don’t bother it!

The Edgeworthia’s gardenia-like fragrance really knocks you out during late winter before the leaves appear.

By the way, we have found that a single feeding of our landscape in early spring with Osmocote Plant Food Plus for Outdoor & Indoor provides a continuous feeding for around 4 months. All our plants seem to love this annual feeding ritual.
