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.

Camellia 'Tricolour'

Camellias are hugely popular low-maintenance shrubs which provide beautiful blooms from early spring, set against a backdrop of glossy evergreen foliage. Camellia 'Tricolour' is the result of a unique growing concept which gives the illusion of three flower colours on one plant. We supply you with three varieties in a single pot. As the plants mature they blend into each other to stunning effect, seemingly producing an array of pink, white and red flowers on a single plant. The evergreen leaves of this slow-growing shrub make a good foil for summer flowering perennials when planted at the back of a border, and the flowers can be cut for a vase indoors. Perfect for acidic borders, Camellias can also be grown as specimen plants in large containers of ericaceous compost. Height: 2m (6.5'). Spread: 1.5m (5'). Supplied in a 15cm pot.
