looks very nice, what is that rather round and lovely bright green bush?

Hello Stickitoffee, If my memory serves me right it is an over-enthusiastic Spirea Goldflame, or Golden Princess... Ha! just looked it up, it is Goldflame, it shouldn't be so big, maybe because I usually just prune it back quite gently, but this year I took it back about a third, so it will be interesting what it does! Gulp!

its looking good anyway, is it evergreen?

No Sticki is isn't...sigh, it would be lovely if it was! However, when it comes into leaf the shoots are a gorgeous russet red, then a sunny yellow darkening to a bright green, it even dies beautifully! Oh, and when it's leaves are changing from yellow, it has bright pink flowers, it can be a bit of a clash...but it is very eye catching...but er, sometimes I trim them off...oops!

quite a plant!! especially being spectacular when it dies! sounds as if its worth having ~ i have quite a shady garden ~ does this need much sun?

25 Mar, 2011

 

Nope! As long as it's not really deep shade it's fine, where it is in our garden only gets glanced with sun until about 11:30 and then it gets shady, sounds like it's worth a try! they are really precious when they're small. When you see a big group of them at a garden centre they are like little jewels!
