You could well be right, Dove. Certainly in Kev121's first picture the leaves are edged a very pale cream... And I agree that Handsworth NS is a beautiful plant - that combination of stem & leaf colour is a winner. Would love to see Verdun's photo with Cotinus Royal Purple, sounds a stunning combination.
I'm looking forward to seeing it too Liri
That's quite some holly bush Verdun - thanks
I'll try to remind you later when the philadelphus and cotinus are showing themselves off too
Lovely contrasting shapes Verdun.
Thanks for all the info guys but the jury's still out for me, maybe it's a golden van Tol ???...... Or maybe it doesn't matter it's still a nice holly.
