hi there im looking for a shade loving shrub that will grow
about 2 metres in high and spread about 3 metres in length
neutral soil evregreen and flowering any ideas please help
web search.. Skimmia japonica, camellia japonica, camellia (cornish spring) camellia les jury, camellia commander mulroy or try camellia cornish snow.
I would add Sarcococca confusa to that
If you have neutral soil, you could try Kalmia Lactifolia, the Mountain Laurel. Bunches of flowers in early summer on glossy leaves. Another one that is semi-evergreen and will keep leaves for much of the year if you have a sheltered spot, like against a wall, Viburnum Hillieri, the Arrowwood. A shrub that has many interests. Clusters of early summer flowers followed by berry-like fruits and leaves that colour from spring right up to late autumn.
