Shrubs - Just Arrived

Shrubs, along with trees, form the backbone structure of the garden design. They provide huge variation in their form, adaptability, tolerance and usage. They are selected for the colour of flower or foliage and for the shapes that they create, either naturally or by pruning. Shrubs lend themselves well to the formation of Topiary and Hedges. 

Although some people regard shrubs as miniature trees, they have completely different growth habits. Some can sucker themselves and send creeping underground stems which root and thereby propagate themselves, whilst others renew themselves after hard pruning.

Hybridum Chinese Lantern. There is something about the pink 'lantern' blooms of this evergreen shrub that is particularly appealing, perhaps they just combine so well with the evergreen foliage or they just look so bright and cheerful nearly all year round. Easy to grow in sun or part shade.

Abutilon respond well to a bit of a hard-prune every now and then to keep a nice compact shape. Make sure you use nice sharp secateurs and prune on a dry warm day.
