Escallonia 'Donard Seedling' - pink buds turn to almost white flowers. Loved by Bees - as you can see!

Ah yes, thanks Shirley. Actually, that's really good because it's underneath a cotoneaster on the back fence, so white or pale flowers will bring a little light to the spot!

This was planted in 2003, Karen, and is now over 6ft. tall, so it's not a rapid grower! It was one of the shrubs I asked the workmen to be careful about during the make-over. They were very concerned about it, so I must have had my stern voice on that day ... lol!

Ah Shirley love this one, not unlike Apple Blossom which I have posted pic of but its not very good pic taken this evening and I`m none to good with this latest camera wish I hadn`t swapped mine with my granddaughter.

They are very similar in colour, aren't they, Stroller? Sounds like your grandaughter got the best deal on the camera swap ... lol!

Crissue, it's taken 7 or 8 years to attain about 6ft. so not exactly a fast grower! : o )
