Garden Notes

Sorbus Pink Pagoda is a tall growing tree with blue green leaves while for a small tree try sorbus vilmorinii with pink berries turning white. You have the purple callicarpa berries. A shrub that I saw growing wild in Florida, but it does as well here. You can get yellow berried holly too. Most skimmias are red berried but I have seen a white form. Another source of food are the fallen apples, so don’t be too much in a hurry to rake them up. ...
