Useful and Beautiful Hedges


The “useful and beautiful” series is up to hedges.

You’re probably thinking that we’re going to be talking about Murraya paniculata, or just Murray or the colder growing version, Choisya ternata.

Perhaps you even thought we would talk Buxus or Lilly Pilly?

But no, we’ve chosen something completely different, after all, it has to be useful and beautiful.

Let’s find out what they are.

Peter mentioned shrub roses like Miss Lowes Rose, Bengal Crimson and Rosa sanguinea.

For more scent choose Rosa chinensis 1,000 lights.
