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.

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?

An attractive spreading evergreen shrub which features sparkling clusters of dark blue flowers in late spring. The shiny foliage turns a deeps ebony shade during winter, changing to dark chocolate-green during spring and summer. Quite hardy and tolerant of wind and cold. PVR 1334.

This is a very useful shrub for cascading over walls and banks. Benefits from a trim every now and then (after flowering) to encourage healthy new growth. Very striking in full flower.

A top rated performance plant for multiple planting, filling in a background or can be used as a low hedge. Glossy deep green leaves are offset by aromatic clusters of white flowers late winter through spring. Hardy and easy to grow in sun or light shade. Evergreen.

The name Mexican Orange Blossom describes the look of the white flowers rather than the perfume as the flowers of this useful shrub are aromatic rather than sweetly perfumed.

Picture of Gardenia Fragrant Star
CLICK TO ENLARGE

Glossy green foliage and delightful single creamy white blooms with a prominent yellow and scarlet eye make this Gardenia very striking. Plant in a semi-shaded, frost free position where you can make the most of the sensuous perfume. Happy in a container. Evergreen.

Gardenias are gross feeders - meaning that like me they like lots of tucker. Regular liquid feeding will keep them healthy and happy or side dress with slow release fertilizer.
