    Hi! I live in Charlotte NC. It is really difficult to find knowledgeable people who can give me info on what conifers do well in this area. One day I would love to visit your nursery. I have cleared a nice area of my yard of scrub trees and would like to add some evergreen specimens and I love the weeping form very much. The area is part shade to dappled. What do you think of Pardocarpus Maki?I would love a blue weeping conifer. Something yellow too. I will be adding choice maples as well.This is the Eastern direction of my yard.Neighboring properties are wooded. Which is providing the shade.Scouring the internet has been fruitless getting info. Nurseries have untrained people working. Plant tags are misleading. I grew a Blue Atlas Cedar in part shade that was very happy and the tag stated full sun. Would love to see a “real blog” for our area, that gardeners could swap ideas. I know your busy but I would really appreciate any tips!
