Bushes and Trees
Welcome to the Bushes and Trees Gallery. This is where you’ll find photos of everything in my garden that I consider to be a foundation plant. Bushes and trees – foundation plants – serve as a garden’s “anchors,” and provide it with not only texture and dimension, but also a vertical visual component that draws attention from ground level to eye level and beyond, upward toward the sky. I always think of a given foundation plant, especially a tall one, as a tether between the terrestrial and the heavenly. Sound like a bunch of melodramatic crap? Trust me. It’s not. Bushes and trees give an ornamental garden a major visual boost. (And while we’re on the subject of visual boosts… rhododendron, azalea, and pieris are three key types of bush in my garden. These bushes can be funny. If you’ve got them growing in your own garden, and they don’t get all the stuff they like to eat, they can turn yellow on you. If you’re looking to keep them green and healthy, or to get them back to green and healthy if they’re already looking on the yellow side, click here to read my article of [May, 2022] about fixing rhodies, azaleas, and pieris that are going yellow around the gills, and keeping them good and green.) As always, all of the pics you’ll find here are of my garden and its plants. And, as with all of the other image galleries in The Renaissance Garden Guy Photo Gallery, I’ll be adding pics right here on an ongoing basis. Feel free to check in often to see what’s new. In the meantime, have a look at these shots. I hope you’ll like ’em. Cheers, and Happy Gardening!
