I have one which looks similar - Euonymus x fortuneii 'Emerald Gaiety'.

Bb, it's Athyricum niponicum 'Pewter Lace' - one of the Japanese Painted Ferns

Think I bought it from Notcutts.

Chrissy, it's not a tradescantia - it's a Roscoea purpurea bought from Carrie Thomas at Touchwood

And don't clear them all up - leave some in some 'untidy areas' - the hedgehogs need them to build their hibernaculums (hibernacula ).

The autumn sun is shining and although the garden is looking a bit dishevelled, there are some glorious colours still shining ...

Looking out of the kitchen window I spotted some Naked Boys in my garden - popped out there with the camera

From 24 degrees on Sunday to the first snow today!

Brrrrrrrr!  Courgettes still fruiting here ... just

What type of tree is this?

Posted: 08/10/2015 at 09:46

Agree - Corylus avellana 'Contorta' the Corkscrew Hazel.  Most attractive in the winter and spring when it loses its leaves and grows catkins. 

Watch out for and remove suckering growth from below the graft - these have straight stems and will overtake the contorted growth which is much loved by flower arrangers.
