We grow a range of interesting shrubby plants including many from the Caprifoliaceae. A lot of the shrubs we grow will work very well when grown mixed into the herbaceous perennials and grasses that we grow in a naturalistic style and some can be pruned hard in spring to give fresh, whippy growth each year to keep their size down. Feel free to ask for pruning advice on any of them as most have several options.
A stunning form of Dogwood with very dark blackish winter stems, purple flushed spring foliage, white flowers and berries followed by another display of purple foliage in autumn! Upright habit to 2.5m unpruned but can be cut back every 2-3 years to a stump
A pretty American shrub with bronze tinted green foliage and terminal clusters of pale yellow flowers in summer and autumn. Good autumn colour too. Suckering but well behaved. 1.2m. Ordinary soil in sun or light shade.
Not your usual Spirea, this has neat leaves of greyish-green and short spikes of white flowers but the best bit is the glowing, almost translucent, purple, through red to orange and then yellow autumn colour. Tidy low growing shrub to 50cm. Ordinary soil in sun.
