My Mum has requested a shrub for her Birthday (end Nov) to go in a new border in her North facing clay front garden. She doesn't want anything that will take much maintenance or grow too large as she doesn't like working out the front much. She specified, low maintenance, flowers, maybe scent (she doesn't want much)! It might also get quite dry because she has a large Sorbus and some other shrubs there already.
I have ordered her these:
Skimmia japonica subsp. reevesiana
Lonicera × purpusii 'Winter Beauty'
Does anyone have these shrubs already and can you give me any advice on care/maintenance. If any are really unsuitable I can just pop them in my garden!
