Collection contains three plants (1 of each variety). Scroll down for full details.
Mahonia Charity - Many upright flower stems up to 30cm long protrude from the top of the rossettes of leaves and are smothered with bright yellow fragrant flowers from November to March. The holly-like leaves are produced in racemes and are evergreen, providing structure all year round. Happy to grow in the shade, mahonias are also excellent for wildlife as they don't just provide nectar during the winter months when it's a little scarce but the ornamental purple berries which follow the flowers are also attractive to birds. A great structural or focal feature for a shady spot when options are sometimes limited. Height 250-300cm.
Viburnum Dawn - The dense clusters of dark pink buds open to strongly fragrant light pink flowers during late autumn and winter through to early spring on the bare stems of this very hardy, large upright deciduous shrub. Over the spring months, the flowers turn to purple berries which are prominent above the deep green foliage. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. Flowers late November-early March. Height 200-250cm.
Nandina Firepower - As the weather begins to get colder in the autumn, this compact rounded evergreen shrub with bamboo-like leaves which have been lime green all summer light up with explosive colours of reds and oranges which remain bright and colourful all winter.In summer clusters of small white flowers are produced which are then followed by round red berries which hold often throughout the winter unless it gets very cold when the birds will be attracted. Flowers late June-July. Height 40-50cm.
