My name is Andy Schenck, and I garden in Malvern, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Philadelphia) in zone 6B/7 (hardy). My garden is called the Look Again Garden (named after my friend David Culp). This is a collector’s garden full of “flow of one”. Winter is a wonderful time for conifers and broadleaf evergreens to shine. Here is a sample of plants that were photographed the week of December 12th.
Sciadopitis verticillata ‘Osorio Gold’ (Zones 5-9) is a Japanese umbrella pine selection with long golden needles. Canopy pines are never common in the landscape, although they are very beautiful, and this gold form is even rarer and possibly even more beautiful.
Tsuga Seboldi (Southern Japanese Hemlock, Zones 6-8) is slow growing and shows great resistance to woolly adelgid, an invasive insect that is doing so much damage to our native North American hemlock species.
