Hi all, I posted a few sets ago re autumn colour on a prunus, has anyone planted one at the back of a border, I want to ensure Ican under plant this and the planned lilac ( obviously with plants for partial shade )
thanks in advance
Lots of plants suitable for shade rosemummy. Aquilegias, lots of geraniums, pulmonaria, spring bulbs, dcebtreas
It might depend on which type of prunus you are thinking of. I have a plum, a damson and a cherry growing well in flowerbeds with happy plants living underneath them.
If you are planning on growing one of those spreading flowering cherries with heavy, double flowers on them you might find that the fallen blossoms form a mat through which other plants have to force themselves. Single flowers would be better then.
Just a thought.
It's a weeping one, only thing is Parkersburg website says 3 meters an old encyclopaedia says 10!
I discovered that with the flagpole cherry I bought from Parkers. They say 3.5, rhs says 8
Hmmm bit of a worry ...
