Spring colours


Spring colours (Erica arborea (Briar))

..I was trying to get a pic of the tree heather in flower, but the evergreen broom was getting in the photo. You can see the silver birch trunk on the left and there is also a baby variegated griselina at the back, and of course a viticella clematis shooting up there too!

Excellent choice, the Grisselina are pretty fast growers, love the tree heather, not grow any of these for years.

The tree heather is nice. I'm not a fan of ordinary heathers at all, but these are great...lovely bright foliage through the winter and the flowers are an added extra. Only problem with this one is I need to water it a lot as it sits right beside the tree. Last year it got dry and part of it died off. But I cut it away and it is now fine again.
