Viburnum Tinus 'Eve Price', Ribes 'White Icicle' and Phormium 'Moonraker' (phormium)

Thought this combination looked quite pretty today, the viburnum will be getting a huge cutback when it eventually stops flowering.

Thought the Phormium looked small, so looked it up, it is dwarfish. Nice combination.

Lovely, looks really good, I havent got a Phormium - do you recommend Moonraker? I like how it contrasts with the other shapes.

Thankyou everyone :-)
Yes its not to big a phormium around 30in x 30inch I'd say.
It is a lovely one Dawn I have a few and wouldn't be without them as you say they add a nice contrast, I thought I'd lost my 2 biggest during those cold winters all the leaves died but they re sprouted and are now back to how they were, its one of those that's my favourite bigger than this one so depends how big you want, I'll put a picture on for you :-)
Thanks Amy must say they all look pretty good this year not many dead leaves to chop off.

A lovely combination, the Phormiums have come through the winter pretty well this time, so not a lot of trimming......

I have to cut off the outer dead leaves with a stanley knife they are so tough!
