Magnolia stellata (Large Plant)

Star Magnolia

This classic, deciduous magnolia has a slow growing, compact habit that is well suited to smaller gardens. The silky buds of the Star Magnolia open to reveal exquisite, pristine-white blooms in early spring.

As spring progresses, Magnolia stellata becomes cloaked with a dense covering of attractive mid-green leaves. This modestly proportioned shrub makes a superb specimen plant for a sheltered border or large container. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 4m (12'). More info

Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' (Large Plant)

Stransvaesia

  • New in 2015
The best known of its species, Photinia ‘Red Robin' is well loved for its blaze of bright scarlet young foliage in spring. The glossy new leaves and crimson stems make a strong contrast with the mature green foliage lower down the plant, giving an eye catching two-tone effect. The Spring foliage is complemented by rounded clusters of creamy white flowers. This popular evergreen shrub is versatile too - plant it in woodland areas and shrubberies for a splash of spring colour, or grow it as a low maintenance specimen plant. This colourful RHS AGM variety even tolerates hard pruning, making a useful evergreen hedge. In frost prone areas, plant Photinia next to a warm wall or in the shelter of other shrubs. Height and spread: up to 4m (13').

Better known as the Cherry Laurel, this dense evergreen shrub makes a popular hedging plant.

As the flowers fade, glossy cherry-red berries take their place, providing food for hungry birds. Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia' is a useful shrub growing equally well in full sun or in the shade of mature trees. This handsome RHS AGM variety makes a superb low maintenance specimen plant for borders, woodland areas and wildlife gardens. Height: 5m (16'). Spread: 4m (13').

Snowball Shrub, Guelder Rose, European Cranberry Bush

 Customer Rating
  • All year round interest
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit

Clusters of snowball flowers smother the stems of Viburnum opulus in May and June, giving way to glossy, red berries in autumn.

This reliable, bushy deciduous shrub is cloaked in vibrant green, maple-like foliage throughout summer before autumn turns its leaves to shades of purple and red. An excellent choice for encouraging wildlife, the Snowball Bush makes a superb specimen shrub for a long season of interest, even in challenging coastal areas. Height: 5m (10'). Spread: 4m (8').

Viburnum opulus 'Roseum' (Large Plant)

Viburnum opulus 'Sterile', Snowball tree

A popular, easy to grow shrub which thrives in the English climate. Viburnum opulus is a bushy, deciduous shrub with pretty leaves, shaped similarly to an Acer, and which turn shades of purple and red by the autumn.

The frothy, white flower heads have caused the shrub to become known as the 'Snowball Tree', and those blooms make excellent cut flowers for vases indoors too. The flower heads open during May and June with a green tinge, becoming pure white over a few weeks. Afterwards, the most vibrant red berries appear, providing autumn colour and giving an excellent food source for the birds. Height and spread: 4m (12'). More info

Plants are versatile, and will grow in many different soil types. Plant at the back of a mixed herbaceous border for a real treat! Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 4m (12').

Sambucus nigra f. porphyrophylla 'Black Beauty' (Large Plant)

Sambucus nigra f. porphyrophylla 'Gerda', Elder

Seductively dark foliage makes this Elder particularly alluring. The burgundy-black leaves of Sambucus nigra f. porphyrophylla 'Black Beauty' are the perfect contrast with its pink flowers. The sweet, lemon-scented blooms are carried in dense panicles in early summer, and later replaced by glossy black elderberries that are loved by birds. This hardy, deciduous shrub makes a highly decorative specimen for wildlife gardens, large borders and woodland areas. Height: 6m (20'). Spread: 4m (12'). More info

Prunus Collection

Prunus 'Amanogawa', Prunus incisa 'Kojo-no-mai', Prunus glandulosa 'Sinensis', Ornamental Cherry

A specially chosen collection of three pretty flowering cherries that are just perfect for bringing spring to your garden! An abundance of pink and white blossoms smother the bare branches before the leaves appear, creating an eye-catching display when much of the garden is still dormant. Come autumn the leaves turn to fiery shades of yellow, orange and red giving a long season of interest.

Ligustrum ovalifolium 'Aureum' (Large Plant)

Ligustrum ovalifolium 'Aureomarginatum', Golden Privet

Ligustrum ovalifolium 'Aureum' is the Golden Privet, with pretty, gold-lined evergreen foliage. Plants will produce clusters of white flowers, but this is unlikely if hedges are trimmed regularly.

Abelia x grandiflora (Large Plant)

Glossy Abelia

Abelia is an under-used shrub in the garden, but one that can give months of interest, colour and scent. The semi-evergreen plants have a robust, arching habit and give excellent autumn interest thanks to the fragrant flowers, borne in clusters. Abelia enjoys a warm, sunny border, and will perform well in dry, sunny borders.

Abelia can be clipped into a hedge easily, and the neat plants have glossy foliage, which stays on the plant for most of the year. Plants will be most hardy when grown by a sheltered wall, although Abelia x grandilfora is the most hardy of all species. Height: 3m (9'). Spread: 4m (13').
