I was just wondering what kind of trees and shrubs everyone has.

I have 3 Blue Spruces, a sweet cherry tree, sour cherry tree, hydrangea tree, boxed elder, pin oak, apple tree, one unknown tree, red maple, and Japanese red maple. Had a hibiscus tree until the wind storm last year did it in.

Bushes I have, red wielga and 2 pink ones. Hmmmmm I think I need more bushes! :eek:

I have 2 italian plum trees and my hubby just bought 2 peach and one cherry tree.
He also wants to get an apple tree or 2 the next time we go to town.
I know he HAS to buy another cherry tree because the 1st one he bought is not self fertile

We have over a hundred trees on our place here and most of them were here when we bought the place. There is a wooded area in our pasture next to the house and it has oaks and Douglas Firs mostly. We have apples, plums, cherries, and pears in our orhard, hazelnut trees, Holly, pines, maples, oaks, magnolia, lilacs, rhododendrons, heather, camelias, and I'm sure I have forgotten some.

I have maples and a transplanted Eastern cedar in my immediate yard and a variety in the woods. For orchard trees I have 2 peach, 1 nectarine, 1 plum, 1 Cortland apple, 1 Rome apple, 1 Golden Delicious.
For shrubs I have a gold flame spirea, spirea japonica, burning bush, lavender colored azalea, lavender colored rhodie, forsythia, Rose of Sharon, and a tall green bush that starts with an "e" that I can't think of the name now, but we call it the Larry, Curly, and Moe because once it got big the heavy snow made us realize it has 3 trunks instead of just one!
