A duo of super shrubs
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).
