At a Glance

This is a large, versatile evergreen shrub with elongated, glossy dark green leaves and white, early summer, cup-shaped flowers. These are produced in long, slender racemes and possess a sweet hawthorn scent.

It makes a fantastic dense hedge, screen or windbreak and forms an attractive, shapely tree if allowed to grow naturally. Its versatility means it can be grown in sun or shade, in any well-drained soil, including chalk. Dense enough to be used as a nesting site by birds, its compact growth habit means it can be easily clipped into formal shapes.

The flowers are followed by small red fruits which turn dark purple in winter.

Buying Topiary from Jacksons Nurseries

Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.

Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.

Availability: Stock availability figures are provided as a guide only. There is a delay between orders being placed and the plants being gathered by our pulling team. During this time it may be possible for a member of the public to purchase these plants from our Garden Centre, while this is rare it is a possibility and we will notify you of any problems as soon as possible. This figure may also include plants that have not yet be flagged as unsaleable.
