Evergreens in the Show Garden:
Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Filifera Aurea’ (Sawara False Cypress); this broadly conical evergreen has golden-yellow needles and small cones; the best colour is most notable on the south side of the plant. (pictured above)
Cotoneaster horizontalis var. perpusillus (Rockspray); a prostrate horizontally-spreading deciduous shrub, developing tiers of branches as it matures; here at last the snow provides a backdrop to the bright scarlet berries.
Abies lasiocarpa var. arizonica ‘Compacta’ (Corkbark Fir); a slow growing evergreen with a conical compact habit, featuring blue-grey leaves.
