Sarcococca hookeriana var.digyna sounds like a good one - what do you think?

Thanks for that.

.... and I didn't realise there were small evergreen clematis - forsteri Joe looks beautiful!

Chaenomeles might be a possibility. Some varieties I've seen seem a bit bare on leaves. Is there a variety which is quite lush and very hardy?

Thanks

A rusty old red heavy-duty scooter - I was never allowed a bike so this was the nearest I got!

Pulmonaria! :)

2 years ago I had a small clump of pulmonaria about 6 inches in diameter. At any time of year, I just chop a bit off and move it elsewhere, then I give it plenty of water until it is established. It will grow where nothing else will grow - under leylandii, on an old tree stump, next to concrete paths etc and I reckon I now have about 14 square metres of the stuff!

I like both but the trouble is that I already have several of each in my garden and wanted something a bit different. It has to be fully hardy.

A problem, for sure

Thanks

I don't really want a "tree" - I would prefer something more bushy and showy. Bay trees look a bit constipated - like conifers. Thanks anyway.

I have a third hogshead barrel to use as a container, so quite large. I ideally would like an evergreen shrub/bush for it, to grow to an eventual height of, say, 1.5m. It will be placed in full sun facing south. I don't like azaleas or rhododendrons.

Any ideas please?

Thanks
