The KingofHearts got tired of trimming our hedge row -- and listening to our good natured, but sometimes a little intrusive neighbor complain about how our hedge row was so overgrown that she couldn't see into our windows from her house -- last year so he pulled out these giant Chinese Elms we had surrounding the front yard. He replaced them with one of my favorite plants ever: the Burning Bush and then we stood on one foot and turned a circle counter clockwise while chanting "grow, grow, grow" while we prayed they survived the winter. I love them because in the fall, the outside leaves of the plant turn a vibrant red color, making the bush look like it's on fire. He loves them because they grow a lot slower than the Chinese Elms and that means less pruning... and less complaining.
