Do you really? I am so gullible. Meant to tell you, Random, that I got a Hop Hornbeam sapling the other day. I have wanted one for some time, but seeing it on your turkey food list prompted me to snap up the only one I have ever actually seen for sale. She is going into the ground just in time for winter root-growing season.

Hedgerowe, you've done it to me again. hmmpf

Just when I'm considering NOT planting all of my potted plants and trying to keep them away from the frost all winter, you have to go and remind me why I need to get off my keester and pop them in the ground.

We're gonna have to have a little talk!

I'm particularly fond of hornbeam. It's a very serene tree. People like the trunk but I love the flower. Planted one this spring and am ordering another.

That looks like something we see occasionally here. It make a nice big tree and at some point in the year it looks like little peachy colored paperish thingys hanging from the branch ends. The image I just found shows yellow ones, but our are more peachy

Biigblueyes, I don't plant many perennials but do plant lots of woodies, and so far it has been my experience that this is the optimum time of the year to get them into the ground in these parts. Lots of winter rain, no baking in the summer heat and humidity, and plenty of time to get those roots settled into their new home before the plant must put its energy into making leaves and flowers. Everything that I plant in the fall has done better than anything that I plant in the spring.

Where you are you could probably plant up until the end of December! What do you have waiting to get into the ground?

Assorted stuff. Thornless Blackberry, porterweed, dwarf hummingbird bush, salvias, echinacea, hibiscus, rose, ginger, turk's cap. When I pull those out, I know I'll find more under the ginger's leaves.
