There are 6 different plants in the planting; two were in 3 gallon pots, Morella cerifera 'Don's Dwarf', and Panicum virgatum 'Northwind', and the Troop rented an auger to speed up planting. The others were planted as landscape plugs. A battery operated hand drill with a bulb auger aided this part of the planting, though and old-fashioned manual bulb planter worked well for the shallower plugs.
This is the last picture I took because, well the plugs are so small you can't even see them but I'll be watching it closely and as soon as the top planting fills in, I'll post some nice pictures. It was a windy day, witness the lean of the Panicum. Originally the Panicum was to have gone in as landscape plugs, but since they weren't available we, by which I mean Susan Fugate, went with the larger plants. I like it...immediate gratification. It will be interesting, to me anyway, to monitor the Waxmyrtle cultivar 'Don's Dwarf'. The Southern Waxmyrtle is a good evergreen for tough sites (hot, dry, sunny, poor soil) and I think it would be nice to have this selection available at retail nurseries in the Washington area.
