This is where my lack of garden knowledge really starts to show: non-edibles! I have two of these nice bushes at either end of my shade garden. They’ve got beautiful leaves and a lovely autumn colour, but I have no idea what they’re called.
This picture was taken on June 23, 2008. I have succesfully pruned these back in late winter twice, and they’re now starting to show some new growth.
I took out one of these in May 2008, because it was looking very unhealthy. The other one’s still doing fine.
This planting is in the Shady Herb & Shrub garden .
Already in my garden (I didn't plant it)
