Need to replace what I think is box

I'd want something with a better shape than those two winter flowerers. They have nothing to offer outside the flowering season, ungainly growth and boring leaves.

I like Verdun's taxus

Ground ivy? Glechoma hederacea?

Or Ivy? Hedera helix?

Or ground elder? Aegopodium podagraria?

 

Controlling re-shooting shrubs

I've got some of these and I'm not letting them get tall again. I'm removing the tip of each stem in the hope that they'll bush out. I'm hoping I can keep them as a bush for some years before they get too big and need cutting back to base again

Can anyone identify my new fungus?

Pics would help but it doesn't sound like honey fungus. Fungi are everywhere, rarely dangerous, often beneficial or at least harmless

My poor philadelphus

That's a shame rm

I would do a nice clean sloping cut just above a healthy bud or even take that whole stem back to base.

Yes, cuttings and division keep a named hybrid/cultivar true. The genes for whatever they were bred from are all in there and any could show themselves in the seedlings.

No poster can spoil a thread unless they're allowed to. Ignored, a post disappears up the thread, respond and it's effects continue.

Was it a reliable hellebore nursery or might it have been seed raised from Washfield Queen and could have crossed with anything?
