Sorry about the bad quality of these pictures.
These little twigs sat in pots on my patio all summer long because I never decided where they should be planted. The twin to this Purple Smoke Bush died on that patio. (RIP, Smoke Bush!)
My indecisiveness gets on my nerves!
Since I had an opening in the rose garden because of the 4 Pink Simplicity Rose bushes that didn't make it through last winter, I decided to plant them there, just until next year when I really must decide where they should go. Otherwise, can you picture what a big Tamarisk and a big Smoke Bush would look like there in that narrow 2 foot bed? YIKES!
