I have about 12 different ones in my garden and I'm on clay soil. They all do very well even the one in the bed that gets flooded after heavy rain, although that one must be 20 years old, so it's got used to it. The only one that hasn't flowered yet is Black Knight, but that's only been in 2 years and grown from a cutting, so no very big. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though as it's a late flowering one. So I suggest anyone with clay soils put some grit in the hole when planting. But I love this family of shrubs. Something for any place, Some grow tall , some short, spreading or upright , even some suitable for rockeries. With flowers that go on and on, what more could you ask for?
