What is your evergreen? A pine tree. Many reasons to love a pine tree.
Pine cones for crafts, ornaments and planting. Pine needles plants love them. After everything you wrote I would put annuals into containers. They need alot of water and good soil. Easier to water a couple of nice containers. Perennials for the ground. Iris and daylilies are tough. Look at other peoples landscaping see what does well and looks nice. Then use some annuals as filler.
May you be blessed with success!

I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.

No pine cones so I'm assuming not. Not a big craft-type person. I make things but they're more utilitarian than crafty.

I guess I could drag in some "seeds" and try to figure out what it is. Read up on it etc. I don't think it has needles.

After giving it a good once-over, I must say that I DO like the shape of it. a LOT. it's a sort of potbelly shape with a tall cone top, rather than a boring triangle or cylinder shape. And it does provide shelter for critters, which I like. It's never been sprayed with anything yucky and it's healthy. It's out in the yard, away from the house so even if it does get big and fall over, the worst it will probably do is take out the power line. And it would have to get REALLY huge to grow INTO the power lines, so I don't think that will be a problem...I suppose it has interesting properties - most trees do. And it seems to love the wind from the wind tunnel, so that's a big plus. It sits straight and true.

OK - I've convinced myself! I love it! Thanks for helping me give it a chance!
