Light or shade?
I have a shrub that I bought for the lovely lime green leaves.
I can't remember what it is, but it looks a bit like a philadelphus and has small white flowers.When the leaves are young, they are bright and 'limey', but as the season progresses, they get darker and boring. The sun is higher in the sky and it gets a lot more sun.
I'm going to move it. Is there somewhere that I could put it to keep the leaves light?
In London. Keen but lazy.
the leaves are maturing, the leaves will darken wherever they are, its a bit like Photinia, red robin, where the leaves start out red and turn green.
Agree with treehugger.
I had a Physocarpus, something Gold. It was stunning for a week or two early in the season and then the both boring shrub in the garden
In the sticks near Peterborough
Thanks chaps. It's going to have to move to garden Siberia then
It could be a Philadelphus coronarius 'Aureus'
I've got 3 in my garden, 2 in full sun, 1 in quite a shady area.
All 3 start off with the limey leaves, but by mid-summer leaves on all are just 'ordinary' green
