What a lovely picture! These are lovely shrubs but I've always resisted because they(some species) do tend to send suckers up all over, don't they?

The one you sent me is doing ever so well Amy, so pleased with it.

This is lovely Amy. You say it doesn't mind semi shade, does it have a soil preference?

Annella I've found and looked at the plant label it doesn't actually say anything about the soil requirements ,it says winter hardy -likes sun and semi shade , I assume it doesn't need anything special , my soil is slightly acid if thats any help .. Thanks Holly did you have anything on your label about soil requirements ?
