In botany, an evergreen is a plant that has leaves throughout the year, five are offered in my evergreen collection.
(The Daphne is no longer commercially available) and Choisya feature in their own collection.
All are hardy and will grow in any soil. The golden leaves of the Escallonia and the Aucuba, the fantastic late winter scent of the Sarcococca and the profusion of flowers on the Escallonia provide interest all year round.
New for 2018
The Gemstone series is a new range of very hardy Hebes that have been trialled for 10 years outside in North Hampshire.
All three are completely different and are an improvement on current cultivars.
All are evergreen and will flower profusely though the summer period.
And best of all are loved by bees and sometimes butterflies as Hebe flowers are slightly scented.
