Mine are in full Sun, which could make a difference. False Indigo is very easy to grow.

The Brushpile had a weather event.

Hail.


Lots of rain caused "Old Faithful" to erupt.

Eastern Wahoo is dear candy.



Eastern Wahoo dug from a road side ditch this Spring, is growing remarkably well, and has doubled in size. Eastern Wahoo is a small brushy tree, that has a massive root system, and is drought tolerant.

The ones you sent me have put on 12" or more of growth already too. You tried growing them from cuttings yet?

I attempted to grow them from cuttings, but had no luck. When I find them in ditches, they're in thickets, so they must be easy to grow from seed.

They need exclussion cages, so deer can only browse what grows through the wire.

Thats why I find them roadside ditches, where deer can't camp out on them. I'll bet they're growing in a ditch near you.
