Choice and rare plants grown in Gloucestershire

Evergreen Shrubs

Corokia cotoneaster – “Wire Netting Bush” – a mass of contorted stems with tiny grey leaves.  Sun or light shade in moist, but well drained soil.

Excellent as tub specimen.  Avoid very cold, exposed sites.

Grevillea ‘Canberra Gem’ – considered the hardiest cv, surviving temperatures of –10°C or lower. Lovely flowers in profusion.

Usual rules on site and soil.

Grevillea rosmarinifolia - dark green, needle like foliage.

Dense clusters of red flowers.

Ilex x koehneana ‘Chestnut Leaf’ – unusual female holly with large chestnut shaped leaves. Masses of deep red berries if pollinated (by any male holly). Pyramid shaped. Excellent in shade, though also sun tolerant.

Can be trimmed as desired. Great in borders or large tubs.

Osmanthus x burkwoodii – a classic evergreen for sun or shade. In mid spring it produces incredibly fragrant white flowers. Can be used in borders or very effective as hedging.

Trim if desired, straight after flowering.

Ozothamnus ‘Threave Seedling’ – a silver foliage plant with red buds opening to white flowers.

Beautiful in a sunny border with good drainage, (plants available in 1.5 or 2 litre pots).

Prostanthera cuneata – the fully hardy Australian Mint Bush. Acid or neutral soil, good light & drainage. Ideal for pots & borders.

Loved by bumble bees when covered in white, purple marked flowers. Scented foliage. One of our best sellers over  many years.

Prostanthera rotundifolia – purple flowers in profusion for late spring. While it grows against walls or fences in a warm, sheltered position, the best is seen when pot grown and given protection (cold glass / poly tunnel is adequate).

Cut back after flowering to get a new flush of seriously spicy foliage. One of the best selling and most praised plants we cultivate.

Rhamnus alaternus ‘Argenteovariegatus’ – classic plant. Leaves marbled grey with creamy-white margins. Small yellow-green flowers followed by fruits which turn red to black.

Dense grower, (plants available in 2 or 3 litre pots).

Sophora ‘Little Baby’ – “Pagoda Tree”, “Dragon Tree” – sells out very quickly! A really useful and choice plant for tubs or borders. Make sure it has space if planted in borders – not a fan of being grown into. Wavy stems and tiny leaves. “Parrot beak” flowers in late spring are an added bonus. Sun or light shade in moist, but well drained soil. Avoid shallow chalk soil.

They have survived many severe winters with no protection, (plants available in 2 or 3 litre pots).
