Choisya 'Sundance'and Campanula....

I had to cut the Choisya quite hard back this year,as it caught the frost..not looking as good as other years,but recovering slowly..

That looks lovely between the aubritia (or may capanula) get the two muddled up

Thanks Nana d..I think Aubretia is much earlier than Campanula..probably finished now..but I know what you mean..very similar in colour ..

My Sundance gets frosted every year Sandra, its flowering now, but needs a trim really. Yours is looking lovely.

Thanks Cinders..it was twice the width it is now..but it's diffcult knowing where to prune..so I had to keep chopping away,till the shape looked half decent.Lol...I would make a very bad hairdresser ! :o)

It looks good to me Sandra and the lovely Campanula set it off a treat,think you can come and chop mine back lol

Lol,Carole..I had to keep standing in front of it to see what it looked like.in the end I just thought 'it will have to do '!
.................
Good idea,Moti..I like them together..in fact so many colours look good against a Choisya..:o)

It's the companion that all the other plants want to be seen with ;))

I agree,Karen..a good background plant..love it in winter,even if it gets frosted..it would have been better if I hadn't pruned it at the wrong time..when most of the buds were on ! ..so impetuous..:o(

Ah, it'll come back, Bloomer... :)

...I might post a picture of one of my box boules...now, that really was a bad haircut day...I have to keep it in a corner now, to hide the damage... :(

I'm sure it will ,Karen..I have trimmed it before,but not as hard..and can see new growth appearing ...I have never had any luck with Box..always went brown..but then again they were in pots,and watering was somewhat neglected...or feeding..so not surprised really..go on,post a pic ...:o)

It's embarrassing, Bloomer...
...but, I'd quite like to know if I can do anything to make it better... :/
