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 fantastic climber from Sichaun, China. Purple flushed 5 lobed leaves on a self-clinging climber. Fairly insignificant flowers should be followed by black berries. Brilliant scarlet autumn foliage. Average soil in sun seems ok.
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.
We are very pleased to have this stunning shrubby honeysuckle available to sell this year. Cream flowers in early summer and masses of glistening red berries on the bare stems in autumn and winter. Limited numbers available.
Pretty lemon yellow margins to the small dark green leaves on this useful evergreen shrub. Makes a low mounded plant to about 60cm high and 1m across but can be pruned to shape. Sun or shade, average soil.
A very bright and attractive foliage shrub with rich red leaves, brightest on the new growth. Rounded heads of white flowers followed by russet seed capsules later on. Can be pruned to size but will grow to 2.4m. Ordinary soil in sun. Easy and hardy.
A stunning form with deeply cut, blackish foliage and contrasting pinkish white flowers. Best in sun for the leaf colour. Will make a shrub to 3m in time, or you can prune it back in late winter. CPVR.
