Skimmia Japonica ‘Temptation’

Native to Japan as the name suggests, it is known for its ability to add a seasonal splash of colour to your garden.

 

They are incredibly easy to look after and rarely need much care once they have established. To get them off to a good start, we suggest planting them while the soil is still moist. They are best combined with a deep mulch and perfect for planting in flower borders, pots and both cottage and city gardens. Preferably placed in an area with full shade, this Skimmia is sure to thrive if watered well.

 

It is the ideal Christmas gift if your loved ones are dedicated gardeners! Head to us here at Coppice Garden Centre where you can find it amongst a range of incredible winter specimens.

Helloborus ‘Glandorfensis’

Our Helloborus ‘Glandorfensis’, more commonly known as the Early Rose Hellebore, is a hardy evergreen that flowers with dark roses throughout the autumn. A popular choice as we head into the winter, their blooms can be seen well into April, providing your garden with colour until the spring comes around again.

Native to Germany, it is known for its spectacular display of dark pink, bowl-shaped flowers and its ability to combat the cold winters and warm summers. We suggest growing it towards the front of an evergreen border where it can provide good coverage during the chillier months. Easy to care for and preferably placed in an area with dappled shade, this Hellebore thrives in rich, moist and free-draining soil.

Rhodanthemeum ‘Casablanca’

Our Rhodanthemeum ‘Casablanca’ more commonly known as the Moroccan Daisy, is a brilliant white flowers that’s said to imitate the white painted buildings that reflect the sun down onto the streets of Morocco.

 

Native to Morocco, Algeria and other parts of Northern Africa, we suggest growing it in a sunny rock garden, a raised bed or at the base of a warm, sunny wall. It is drought tolerant too, making it ideal for summer borders and containers. Over time, it will mound up and form a good ground cover, keeping the weeds in check! As a hardy perennial, this Rhodanthemeum performs best in a free-draining soil with a lot of sun and a sheltered aspect.
