what is this? pink tones underside
Looks very familiar.. Could it be somekind of Hebe? (Hebe x andersonii?) Not sure, the leaves look a little different. But it could be ;)
could be Evert, but i think more likely Euonymus fortunei probably 'Variegatus'
So Euonymus was the other I was thinkig. With hairy flowers..
I agree with Euonymus fortunei - Silver Queen (as as variegatus) has that pink undertone to the leaves
Yes, I went for Variegatus as that's more prostrate and fits with the description of groundcover. SQ grows to be a substantial shrub and i don't find it gets as pink as that either, though granted it is tinted.
I didn't realise there was a difference in the sub species and the cultivar Philomel. Thanks!
Just spend too much time with my nose in Hilliers' catalogue LOL :)
I often visit the Hilliers arboretum nursery but I've never been round there LOL.
tiG This is a lovely little shrub I hope it does well for you
wow, y'all are good, I told DH you all would get it in no time:) thanks!
philomel - i think the tint gets stronger in the autumn/winter when the cold weather comes, must be something to do with the cold.
Yes, it does, that's right Lilith
These forms used to be classified as E radicans - because they root along the stems. They use this to creep up anything nearby. When SQ is mature she really fills out and can become quite a sturdy shrub, particularly if you keep the straggly bits trimmed as hc says :)
