What can i plant in the front of my house where have removed a yukka. Want it to grow outwards rather than upwards, flower in Spring & Summer and not be bare in Winter. I like reds and bluey colours.



how about one of them low growing spruces that look like velvet ?

Some of the trailing cotoneasters, maybe?

Presumably sunny situation, as you had a Yucca there - how high and wide do you want it grow?

18 May, 2010


about 4ft high and the same width

Cistus 'Peggy Sammons', Hebe 'Autumn Glory' or H. 'Midsummer Beauty' , though the last one is only moderately hardy, but does survive most years.

thanks, i did suggest a hebe to the customer and a rhodendrum or a ceonothus but still no joy, cannot think of anything else though
