Garrya Elliptica James Roof 3 litre pot
Unusual evergreen Shrub
Long, silvery catkins up to 20cm long, shine out among glossy, wavy-edged, dark green leaves throughout winter.
The silken tassels of his upright, evergreen shrub make a stunning feature in the winter garden.
Try it towards the back of a sunny, shrub border, against a wall or as a windbreak in coastal areas.
When it has finished its display, the dark foliage makes a lovely foil for summer-flowering shrubs.
We love this shrub as we cut the catkins and use them in our holly wreaths.
We have our plants growing in very dry soil.
