December Flowers and Christmas Greetings from Downside Nurseries

Shrubs at Downside

Shrubs are getting difficult to source, particularly anything out of the ordinary.  We try and propagate what we can ourselves and keep a sharp eye out for any interesting subjects. We have just had a delivery in from the shrub specialist Brockhill Nursery. Some very nice items:
Albizia julibrissin (Persian Silk Tree) Range Selection (green leaved Albizias are hard to come by at the moment for some reason);
Cytissus battandieri – not rare but have been unobtainable all year;
Clianthus Red Cardinal – a climber that needs to be cossetted but well worth the effort;
Some less usual Chaenomeles (also known as the Japanese Flowering Quince) Madame Butterfly, Apple Blossom, Geisha Girl, Kinshiden ;
Eucryphia × nymansensis ‘Nymansay’ – one of the hardiest Eucryphias.

and quite a lot else besides
