Went out for my birthday (Oct. 25) and purchased some plants that I had been eyeing since summer. Being late October, I got both sets at a significant discount.
Clumping Bamboo (Fargesia ‘rufa’):
This non-invasive bamboo should add more of an Asian esthetic to the garden.
False Cyprus Cumulus (Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Cumulus'):
These small evergreen shrubs are easy to maintain and will not grow too large. They are very shapable and look like miniature versions of larger evergreens seen in traditional Japanese gardens.
