I think all councils use the same list of shrubs no matter where they are. The only place I have noticed different plantings are on roundabouts where we have themes going ie seaside planting complete with old wooden boat, Japanese style roundabout with bamboos, acers etc, Scottish hillsides with Betula Jacquemontii multi stemmed, azaleas and heathers. Our councils now also have wild flower meadow roundabouts which are lovely. Apart from that, the rest of the stuff is just common or garden shrubs and bedding. And roses.
