    I have a standard weeping Cotoneaster x suecicus 'Coral Beauty'


     , which is less than 2 metres high, evergreen, pretty white flowers in spring, and red berries that last into winter. Birds love it. 

  • I would choose an acer or maple. Such vivid colour and they come in all sizes from just a couple of feet high to very tall.

  • well you have certainly given me some good ideas, Thanks every body. Will have to make a list and hit the garden centres this wekend thanks again.

    Although attractive to look at, Sorbus vilmorinii doesn't smell very nice when in bloom. We tend to try and keep up wind of it around May/June time.

    How about a standard rose - one that flowers more than once a year underplanted by lavender or box.
