Our Top 5 Shrubs

1. Skimmia Rubella
Are known for their dark red flower buds that are produced in autumn and last through the winter until the flowers open in spring — an excellent plant for a patio pot or border.
☀️Position: Partial – Full shade
????Flowering period: April and May

2. Viburnum Tinus
An excellent evergreen shrub with dark green leaves and clusters of small white flowers. Ideal for brightening up a part shaded area of the garden over winter and into spring when little else is flowering.

☀️Position: Full sun or partial shade
????Flowering period: December – April

3. Photinia ‘Carre Rouge’
A tremendous compact variety that has blood-red young growth and smaller leaves reaching up to 2.5m tall – nearly half the size of its mother plant Photinia ‘Red Robin’. Its height makes it a much more appealing hedging variety and an easily managed landscape shrub.

☀️Position: Full sun – partial shade

4. Euonymus japonicus ‘Green Spire’
An upright compact evergreen shrub with dark green foliage. An ideal substitute for Buxus that will easily trim into a low hedge creating the perfect garden border.

☀️Position: Full sun – partial shade

5. Hebe ‘Little Leaves’
Are a great alternative to traditional cultivars such as Hebe Red Edge, as they are much more disease resistant. This variety has healthy red/purple leaf tips that have a neat, round dense growing habit that will require little trimming.

☀️Position: full sun or partial shade
