There are many that are easy to grow and care for and will give you years of pleasure, making this range of plants great value for money! View our video on How to plant shrubs and take a look at Michael Perry's (New Product Development Manager) Top 5 shrub recommendations
Hibiscus syriacus 'Oiseau Bleu' (Large Plant)
Hibiscus syriacus 'Blue Bird', Rose Mallow
Hibiscus flowers are some of the most exotic in the garden. These hardy shrubs are one of the last to break into leaf in late spring. But once they do, they're clothed in pretty three-lobed foliage until a late summer explosion of tropical, silky blooms that last right through into October, when much else had faded. Hibiscus 'Oiseau Blue', or 'Bluebird' as it is often named, requires little maintenance but enjoys a long, hot summer to produce the most stunning blue hibiscus flowers. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2m (6').
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Blue Danube' (Large Plant)
Hydrangea are one of the easiest shrubs to grow, and will perform extremely well in gardens up and down the UK. They will grow in sun or shade, and in most different types of soil. Although, remember that an acidic soil will give blue flowers, whereas an alkaline soil will produce pink blooms!
Hydrangea ‘Blue Danube' has been specially selected for its deep blue flowers, with compact growth yet large, showy flower heads, 20cm (8") across. Grow in mixed borders, or in patio containers. Height and spread: 1m (39").More info
Hibiscus syriacus 'Belli Colori Azurri' (Large Plant)
Rose MallowThis hardy, deciduous shrub is one of the last to break bud in spring Ð but well worth the wait! Exotic looking, sky blue flowers smother the dark three-lobed foliage in late summer and autumn, when many other blooms have faded. Hibiscus syriacus 'Belli Colori Azurri' will thrive on most soils but is particularly useful for tricky alkaline conditions. Rose Mallow requires little maintenance but enjoys a long, hot summer to produce the most stunning hibiscus flowers. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2m (6',5"). More info
