Shrubs


Shrubs are an essential addition to the garden, providing structure and all-year-round interest. They are valued for their stunning flower displays, colourful foliage, winter berries and fragrance. Winter-flowering shrubs are especially valued for their colour, and often fragrance, when little else is growing in the garden. Evergreen shrubs are superb for permanent structure in the garden and are a perfect foil for summer perennials. Whether your garden is in full sun or full shade there’s a shrub to suit almost any situation with our value-for-money range! To get the best from your garden shrubs see our How to plant trees and shrubs guide.

Hidcote - An evergreen, aromatic semi-shrub with narrow, silver-grey leaves and leafless stems topped with deep, purple-blue tubular flowers in summer.
Munstead - Dwarf compact variety with dense mounds of fragrant evergreen, grey-green foliage bearing deep-lavender flower spikes during summer.
