The gardener is the garden--are you bold in multiple respects, only one of which is gardening?
Now 'Hercules' nifty martini-glass silhouette is visible, and there's a huge space to replant:
I loved the Calothamnus villosus, and the Calothamnus loved that spot. I felt bad cutting them down. They needed little water. Their flowers fed hummingbirds and bees. Bad bugs ignored them. They did not reseed (this isn't necessarily a good thing). Their litter was fine textured and became an excellent mulch. No pruning needed except to control size. The one flaw seems to be rodents using the stems as nest-building material.
Sure sign of rodent infestation. This must go!
I decided to be bold, and try something new. Callistemon viminalis 'Slim' will provide for the hummingbirds and bees in a more narrow footprint. 'Wilson's Wonder' Leucadendron and Leucospermum 'Tango' will supply dramatic color and take up less space. There will be room for a few more Aloes and Agaves waiting for a place in the ground, too.
Leucospermum 'Tango', undoubtedly bold:
The photos do not exaggerate its intense color.
I'm not at all bold in real life. Boldness seems easier and more possible in the garden. In real life there's a line between boldness and foolhardiness which should not be crossed.
Look, a supervisor!
