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.

Picture of Abelia Grandiflora Snowdrift

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

Abelia is so versatile. Green and cream edged foliage, small white flowers. Hardy to cold and drought with a mature height of 3m. They make great formal hedges and equally good casual hedges. You can turn them into standards or topiaries for fun. They grow in pots, they work as ground covers, they're fantastic filler plants and they look just as good all by themselves. Evergreen

A wonderful mounding foliage shrub from our Australian neighbours. 'Limelight' has a big, bushy, 'fro hair do made up of fine cascading green foliage. Well behaved in a container or the garden. Great landscaping plant. Happy in sun or part shade in light well drained soil. Evergreen PVR.

Acacia 'Limelight' should only be given a very light dressing of slow release fertilizer in the autumn as it is not a greedy plant and shouldn't be over fertilized.

Picture of Buxus Green Gem

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

A slow growing compact form of Box with a naturally rounded shape. In spring the fresh new growth is shaded a beautiful soft lime green turning to a darker glossy green on maturity. Easy to grow in sun or part shade. Evergreen.

'Green Gem' is the perfect choice for a low hedge as it doesn't need as much clipping as other Buxus due to its compact habit. Nice for topiary work too. Though 'Green Gem' is very tolerant and hardy it prefers not to have 'wet feet' in winter - quite understandable, I don't much like wet feet myself!

Buttercup Tree. This evergreen shrub is a real stand out in the winter garden. The dark green foliage is covered by a mass of bright yellow 'buttercup' blooms from autumn through winter. Easy to grow in a sunny well drained spot preferably with some wind protection.

As the 'Buttercup Tree' blooms on new growth it is a good idea to prune after flowering each year to encourage new shoots. Don't worry if the leaflets fold at night - they do this naturally - isn't nature clever?

Plum Gorgeous is the deepest and darkest coloured foliage of any Loropetalum on the market, and retains its colour all year round.
