plants, but Euonymus alatus was probably the first. Hailing from China and Japan, it is slow-growing, and deciduous. The greenish-white flowers appear in spring and, for much of the year, it is a green, innocuous-looking shrub.However, in autumn
.Stachyurus praecox - deciduous shrub that grows to about 3m high. The hanging, greenish flowers in early spring (before the leaves appear) are very pretty. Leaves good in autumn as well.Magnolia denudata - one of the finest magnolias which flowers a couple of weeks
of year “in the green”. This means that they appear with leaves rather than as dried bulbs. You do not have to have a huge woodland in order to grow bluebells as they will grow happily under deciduous shrubs or along hedgelines.Like all the best things
: The wood anemone. You don’t have to have a wood to grow this little plant. Underneath deciduous shrubs or in a shady corner will do fine. Also comes in white and a sort of washy pink. But I would stick with the first two.
