A duo of su­per shrubs

Amateur Gardening - - Gardening Week -

Rosa Mun­stead Wood AGM

This David Austin shrub rose has flow­ers that smell of ripe damsons, the vel­vety petals in a beau­ti­ful shade of crim­son-ma­roon. Healthy and re­peat-flow­er­ing, it’s a good choice for plant­ing with peren­ni­als and grasses in a sunny bor­der. H: 39in (1m).

Hy­drangea ar­borescens ‘Annabelle’ AGM

The bun-shaped ivory flow­er­heads – mea­sur­ing up to 5in (25cm) across – ma­ture to lime and con­tinue to look good in au­tumn and win­ter when the flow­ers have browned. Happy in sun or par­tial shade. H: 5ft (1½m).
