#1. Callicarpa dichotoma. They weren't very spectacular this year. ?Too much heat.
#2. Jack in the pulpit (OK, not a shrub...)
#3. Dwarf pomegranate (punica granata nana).
#4. Wittmann peony (paeonia wittmanniana)

Wee, you grow things I only read about. I have never seen fruit on Jack in the Pulpit. It really stretches my imagination about what can be grown.

Yes, good job there Wee, I am envious! How'd you get such good production with the heat and drought we had this Summer? I was having a hard time just keeping everything watered and even then there was some stuff too far away too water and several plants died with or without supplemental water, from just the heat. Some plants survived but way underperformed, like losing all their leaves or no flowers, that kinda stuff was everywhere.

But, in any case, I can see where some have the commitment and resources and would have to do it like a job, just providing some normalcy for their plants.
They look nice, you have done an outstanding job.

Very poor berry crops here this year, after the late, cold, wet "summer" (if it can even be called that).
