They do seem to be a bit precious, Bloomer...fingers crossed for you! I'll probably have difficulty keeping this one alive... ;)

We have this Karen - done me proud - just be careful come winter with frost - or as this Summer's going anytime with Frost! Beautiful shrub

Have had this one for a long tme and it has grown to about 7 foot.It is well protected between a few other shrubs.I remember Paul buying one last year and asking about protection.

Sad to say, I am just too far north for these. I lost my lovely big one in that awful winter and I shan't try again. Pity as they are so useful for winter colour, especially this lovely variegated one!

Lovely. Mine keeps fighting with the frosts :) It's now fighting with the fennel!

The one I have was frosted 3 years ago at the top of the shrub......had to cut out the affected bits and its slowly reviving all be it into a wierd shape.!!!

Hi everyone!

I'm so glad to see that you all have this one in the ground. I went to a different nursery this week and the woman said that I would have to protect it in winter...so, for her to be saying that - here - made me a bit apprehensive - lost enough last year... :/

Maybe as long as it's in a sheltered spot it'll be fine!

Now, I'm away to google a black one... ;)

Lovely Karen - I have this - in a pot, over wintered well in neighbours greenhouse!

I know, Scottish! Can't you see I've got it in the same coloured pot??

I stole your creation, shamelessly...hope you don't mind...lol...! ;)))

8 Jun, 2012

 

Well now you mention it.......of course I don't mind - the dark pot shows it at it's best as it picks up the colour on the stems :) I'm actually quite chuffed :))

Nice healthy shrub Kf. I have Pittisporum Abbotsbury Gold which has a gold stripe through the leaf. It was planted in Summer 2009 and is doing very well. It has come through two really bad winters. It is described on the label as half hardy. It is among other shrubs so maybe that helps.

They had just come in from the growers and looked really splendid!

Meadowland said that too about other shrubs providing shelter, Sg...but, I don't think I'm going to put it in the ground because I liked the colours for the filter-bed Med. garden. Of course, that won't necessarily stop me from getting another one for the ground at a later date, now that you have all given me confidence that it would have as good a chance as any!

I'll probably wrap this one up for the winter though, just in case...although, you'd think for all the world that it is winter right now...
