GARDEN NEWCOMERS 4: SHRUBS : GADENING

UNLIKE bedding plants, shrubs cannot be discarded after a season and their ultimate size makes choosing whether or not to grow them an important decision. So the turnover of new varieties is slower and less well publicised than it is with smaller plants. An exception has been the "Barnsley" tree mallow, with porcelain pale flowers, which occurred as a chance seedling in Rosemary Verey's famous garden. This has been the best seller of the Nineties. It flowers all summer, but it grows thuggish in old age, and as it has now made an appearance in so many gardens it could be suffering from over-exposure. The plant that seems set to replace "Barnsley" is a new Lavatera called "Pink Frills", a shrub with better manners and smaller flowers.
