Sunset Shades

The warm orange shade of the Crocosmia draws attention to the rich mahogany bark of the paper bark maple (Acer griseum). In winter these bulbs will have died down leaving the tree to stand as a dramatic silhouette in the winter landscape.

They are just the basic montbretia (Crocosmia ) . Full sun, well drained soil. They do spread quite easily but I like that.

Paintbox Garden added this to How to Help Your Trees Weather a Storm
Plan for the future. When a tree must be removed because it's been uprooted in a windstorm or damaged beyond repair, an opportunity can present itself for positive change: Plant a new tree. With loss comes the chance to redesign, to plant something else you've always wanted to grow, or perhaps to simplify the landscape by doing away with a tree and converting the area to a lawn or meadow.For some, the loss of a large shade tree means that a garden is suddenly thrust into sunlight and plants must be moved to new locations. This can be an awful event, or it can be a positive experience. There is sadness and a feeling that a longtime friend is gone. And then there is the joy a new tree brings.
The paperbark maple is a more modest-size, slow-growing deciduous tree, prized not only for its beautiful foliage but also for its attractive peeling cinnamon-colored bark.
Therese Ciesinski added this to 6 Trees You'll Fall For
The old advice was to stake every newly planted tree; the new thinking is that the tree grows stronger and straighter without being staked. However, staking is a good idea if your site is especially windy or the tree is in danger of being clipped by a lawn mower. The stakes will keep the blades of the mower from getting too close.

Remember to site your tree according to its needs for sun or shade, soil pH and moisture requirements. And always check with your local utilities before you start digging to identify underground power, gas and cable lines. Whether spring or fall, trees are planted the same way: Dig a hole twice as wide as it is deep, set the tree in the hole to the depth of the root flare, backfill with soil, water deeply and mulch. Don’t fertilize; that encourages top growth that may be killed by frost. You want the tree to concentrate on root growth.

Planting notes. Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. Amend the soil you have removed with about 20 percent well-rotted compost. Add some bonemeal to the planting hole and mix it in — this promotes root growth. Add the tree to the hole and backfill carefully, tamping down gently. Water thoroughly. If you feel staking is necessary, be sure to allow some movement — this actually helps promote stronger roots. Keep the tree well watered for the first two years; after that just water during prolonged dry spells.
