What flower or shrub would make an eye catching show for the center.

    Just a few suggestions...

    You could always try something like a box, which can be easily topiaried into practically any shape. There's also Camelia's, Corydylines (put on anexcellent display) and ten you could always buy a obelisk and grow a climber.

    I've been re-doing my front garden. A wonderful suggestion was a small tree called Cercis forest Pansy I think) you could then underplant with decorative low growing shrubs and edge border with something like lavender, depending on your aspect.

    It looks better if you don't have one solitary shrub but a group

    Verdun there's no lawn a 5ft hedge to the right so partly shaded size width 12ft length 10ft just all been turned over soil good and light. I have lots of flowers to plant but need something more mature for the center then plant roundabout it got a Pennisetum Fireworks but was thinking of keeping that for the back garden.
