Thanks Michelle, We are trying to decide on either a cryptomeria nana or the weeping hemlock

Hi,
I was not familiar with the cryptomeria nana, but it looks rather nice. According to what I read about it, it seems that it won't grow as big as the weeping hemlock. So, it all depends on how high you want it to be. Mine are more than 10 feet high now.

Hi Meghan,

The shrubs with the red and pink flowers are rhododendrons. They generally bloom in May, In Vancouver, BC, and their flowers last for about three to four weeks. They thrive in an acid soil and in a mild climate (zone 8). They don't loose their leaves in winter, which is a big plus. Next year's buds appear at the end of the blooming season, and lie patiently dormant on the plant throughout the winter, waiting for next spring. They can become very tall and bushy if properly trimmed.
I also replaced some junipers with rhododendrons in my garden, and I'm very pleased that I did it. When they are in bloom, they are magnificent! Here are some close-ups of the darker red bush.

Wonderful! I am so excited to rip out the unruly junipers that the previous owners let take over the yard for 20+ years. Uffdah, it will be a winter/spring job. Thank you for replying so quickly!

You can do a screen capture of the image on your computer. As long as you are just using the pic for your personal reference I wouldn't think it would be a problem.

The green bushes in the foreground are hydrangeas, with their leaves out, but before they start blooming.

They probably would. They need mild summers and wet winters"...This is why they do so well in British Columbia, where I live. Do you have very hot summers, in Virginia? If it's the case and you decide to plant one, make sure that you water it regularly during the hot season, and it should be fine.

I found also this on the Internet:
Cultural Preferences
Hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 4 to 7, the weeping Alaskan cedar prefers full sun exposures, though it tolerates partial shade. It grows best in moist, slightly acidic to neutral soil with excellent drainage. Protect trees from southwest winds.
.
Thank you for your nice comment and good luck ! I agree with you: it's a gorgeous tree.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

While not all of us can have a decades-old garden, those who do are quite fortunate. Because planting trees first is, of course, the ultimate abundant design strategy. If you don't have a timeless garden, you can emulate this style by encouraging a naturalistic approach. Appreciate the architecture of your trees; encourage mossy rocks and ground covers to blanket the earth. Allow plants to grow to their full and inherent forms. Then give yourself a place where you can walk, contemplate and appreciate what you have. Here, the small section of green lawn is a soothing place of rest amidst the large conifers and broadleaf evergreens at its edge. Stunning!
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Unwind in Your Own Private Garden Escape
Add a weeping or pendulous tree. This may sound simplistic, but weeping and pendulous plants do help us feel relaxed, while upright spiky plants incite energy and activity. Picture yourself performing the relaxation technique of slowly breathing in and breathing out. Notice two things: the position of your body after you exhale and the accompanying feeling.Weeping and pendulous trees imitate this form. Notice the wonderful pendulous Alaskan Cedar trees (chamaecyparis nootkatensis, zones 4 to 8) in the photo. Don't they lend a sense of calm to this garden space?
Cultivate calm. A gentle breeze on a warm day is a welcome thing, but strong winds can turn reading the Sunday comics at the patio table into a Three Stooges comedy routine. It helps to understand the dynamics of airflow before you erect a windbreak, whether built or planted. When wind hits a solid vertical surface, it compresses and spills over the wall, causing turbulence. This means that except for a short distance immediately against the lee side of a fence, your efforts might not be very effective. A better strategy, if space allows, is gradually lifting the wind by creating a build-up of elements. On the windward side of your garden, plant knee-high plants to start lifting the wind, backed by shoulder-high, then head-high plants and finally, a taller wall or fence, if needed. This will create a laminar flow and achieve a larger quiet zone for you to enjoy in your garden. If there isn't adequate space, a diagonal board along the top of the fence, acting as an aerodynamic foil, can increase the windbreak's effectiveness. Another strategy is to filter, rather than block, the wind by planting shrubs or vines that allow some air to pass through them.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Energy Now: Designing a Garden That Gets You Going
Evaluate Plant ShapesLarge trees such as these conifers can add a sense of grandeur to almost any garden. Trees with weeping or pendulous forms tend to help us feel relaxed.
Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Warm Up Your Home With an Evergreen Windbreak
Use evergreen trees at least twice the height of your home and plant them perpendicular to the prevailing winter winds. Tall, dense trees will guide the wind upward and over the downwind area for a distance of up to 10 times the height of the windbreak.

Windbreak: Use evergreen trees at least twice the height of your home and plant them perpendicular to the prevailing winter winds. Tall, dense trees will guide the wind upward and over the downwind area for a distance of up to 10 times the height of the windbreak.

I like the lushness, and the fact the grassy area is surrounded by big bushes. This would be a great 'spot' for privacy.

windbreak - Trees should be sited no closer than 10 feet to the house, but within 50 feet of it. Tall evergreen trees should be planted 10 to 20 feet apart in rows or clusters for maximum effect.
