What’s in Bloom: February 24

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.

Pinus koraiensis ‘Winton’ (Korean Pine); a shrubby low spreading pine with long blue-green needles, it will grow much wider than it will tall.

Abies lasiocarpa var. arizonica ‘Compacta’ (Corkbark Fir); a slow growing evergreen with a conical compact habit, featuring blue-grey leaves.

Thuja occidentalis ‘Sudsworthii’ (White Cedar); this cultivar has short branches and gold leaves which tend to bronze in winter; prefers a position in full sun
