A fairly recent addition (12 Months) to the front garden, replacing the now defunct Ceanothus.
It is a very attractive dark wine coloured evergreen with rounded habit, the new grow shows as pale green making it very attractive. I believe it is slow growing, which suits me fine these days, especially where it is situated. I try to create interest with the evergreens by planting different colours / shades, so the wine colour is added interest. So far it has proved to be slow growing and trouble free which is a bonus. I am considering putting one in the back garden as another shrub has come to the end, more dead wood than good, so its gone to the green bin.
