...you were saying...?
I shall take this opportunity kru, to highlight a border shrub that is in flower now in my garden that I absolutely adore, and it's a pity one doesn't see it planted more often I think, at least as an alternative to Forsythia. It's Ribes x odoratum, or Buffalo Currant. It also has a delightful clove scent....I hope you like it.
Thank you for the reply. It seems like my description was missing as i was using my mobile. I want some suggestion on border plant which will provide bit privacy for my front garden and bit color. Your plant looks nice. How tall can it grow?
I am aware of conifers but wanted something that might give bit color and will grow fast and medium bush. Also, if I were to use conifer which one will grow fast. Thank you for your help.
On reflection, I think in your case I would go for a Forsythia, it's fast growing, gives a bit of colour in Spring - sometimes autumn colour as well, and it can be cut back if necessary. It's not evergreen but the dense twiggy growths should be adequate I would think.
Fast growing conifers are a pain in the backside eventually and I would avoid if I were you, but it's your decision. The plant I highlighted is difficult to find.
