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.

Well we can't award this winter flowering shrub the top prize for beauty but we can give it 10 out of 10 for perfume. From mid winter the bare branches are covered in soft yellow flowers with the most delicious fragrance. Picks well so put some in a vase for instant aromatherapy. Deciduous.

Picture of Cotinus Coggygria
CLICK TO ENLARGE...

Smoke Bush. An easy to grow, large, spreading shrub with oval green leaves that have vibrant autumn tones prior to leaf fall. The common name comes from the misty-mauve panicles of bloom that form a smoky halo over the whole bush in summer. Plant in the sun in well drained soil. Deciduous.

It is common practice to prune Cotinus quite hard in winter which will encourage a tidy growth habit and renewed growth that produces a better foliage display. Not absolutely necessary though.

An outstanding Lacecap Hydrangea that is highly desirable for the deepest blue, flat flower heads that put on a real show during summer and autumn. Compact, tidy and free flowering. Prune (to a pair of fat buds) either at the end of flowering or in early spring to keep tidy. Deciduous.
