Camellia shaped into a tree. ONLY grows in zones 7-9 :( but blooms in the winter there!

Buh-Bye Camellia

So the one inherited foundation shrub that I said was “love at first sight” is also the one to go. I can’t quite believe I made the decision but I have, and it feels right. As the weather allows I’ve been busy working on the front garden redo (pictures to follow…someday) all the while glancing at the foundation plantings and knowing that something just wasn’t working. Finally I realized I’d been blind to the big sore thumb, the Camellia. Not that it isn’t a perfectly lovely plant! It is! But…

these beauties bloom in the cold winter days, I just love them

Alternatives to Leyland Cypress

Because of its fast growth rate and thick evergreen needles, Leyland Cypress is commonly planted close together in long rows as a privacy screen. It does make a good screen and very quickly too.

Camellia hedge - Small to mid size privacy hedge - Camellia evergreen shrub. 6' - 15'. There are many varieties of camellia and each seems to be more beautiful than the last.

Camilla will provide thick cover and a living screen. It's perfect for mixed borders.

Hedging plant Loropetalum chinense 'China pink' in flower

In February I composed a blog entry on the hedging plant Loropetalum chinense 'China pink'. http://aggregata.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/hedging-plant-loropetalam-chinense-in.html At the time the hedge had just been trimmed and as such the flowers and pink / red foliage were not on show. I walked past the same hedge in Fairfield last week and saw that it had been left long enough to reveal its most attractive features. The coloured foliage is from new growth only which is why it has coloured up…
