Plant of the Month

January

 

Garrya elliptica James Roof

This is a beautiful evergreen shrub that can make a stunning display in a winter garden. At this time of year catkins appear, creating a lovely waterfall effect with white tassels up to 30cm long that hang against dark glossy leaves. The leaves then continue to provide a perfect backdrop for summer planting. Can be grown as a freestanding bush or against a wall. Grows up to 4m x 4m. The tassles inspired regency furniture makers in their design and marquetry inlay - nature inspiring art!
