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.

A useful evergreen shrub to brighten up dull and shady corners of the garden as the new foliage is a golden yellow maturing to yellow-green. Little white flowers appear in spring. Happy in average conditions with protection from the afternoon sun.

Commonly known as Mexican Orange Blossom which refers to the look of the flower rather than the fragrance. Both the leaves and flowers of Choisya have an aromatic fragrance rather than a sweet perfume.
