feature shrubs (evergreen)

Due to weed and moss taking over, I am forced to do away with my front lawn and have created 2 centre beds with gravel paths surrounding. The outer borders are well established with shrubs. I want to plant a feature shrub in the centre of each bed with ground cover plants around them. I would prefer evergrens about 1 metre high and same spread. The beds are exposed to the elements, although in Drevon we are fortunate not to suffer harsh weather conditions very often. I already have the 'run of the mill' shrubs so want something unusual but spectacular.  


  • How about a Phormium 'Sundowner' (think it's called that - it's the red one anyway - centred with some clipped box balls and ground cover inbetween (topiary always looks good in a front garden).
