Plant choice and lack of rain in recent years
Good morning. How many plants have you thrown or given away, say, in the last 3/4 years because said plants needed too much water? So far I had to renounce to 3 hydrangeas and 2 big, established rhododendrons. I still have one rhododendron (over 30 years old inherited from previous owners, planted in shade) but it is not working hard enough for his upkeep really. I also have a Fothergilla that, come June, it will be constantly thirsty but at least it has pretty leaves in autumn (if I water it in summer). I should perhaps add that my water is metered. I live in Luxembourg, it used to be rainy here.
