Shrubs

Why grow shrubs?

Shrubs offer something for everyone.

In purely utilitarian terms, many make perfect formal or informal hedges, marking out a boundary much more picturesquely than a wall or fence. A shrub hedge can also help to block unsightly views, thwart nosy neighbours, and even absorb noise.

Shrubs can tie different elements of your garden together, creating continuity in what might otherwise be a jumble of plants. They add colour and texture where you need it most – in the form not just of flowers, but of leaves and berries. Many species and varieties of cornus have gloriously colourful stems that brighten the gloom of winter. Some shrubs are evergreen, providing interest when other plants in your garden are taking their winter break. And most require limited maintenance beyond annual pruning.

Here at Lottaplants, we specialize in five genuses of garden shrubs. Our unusually large collection covers all the bases: sun and shade, evergreen and deciduous, big, small and dwarf.

Acer
Japanese maples are grown particularly for their gorgeous autumn foliage. We have one of Europe’s biggest selections, numbering hundreds of species and varieties. These include such spectacular examples as , Acer palmatum ‘Japanese Princess’, whose leaves start out bright cream and pink, then age to green before transforming to red and orange in autumn; and the feathery-leaved A. japonicum ‘Dissectum’.

Camellia
We sell dozens of cultivars of this hugely popular evergreen garden shrub, in every shade of red, pink, white, and purple. They range from the lovely flesh-coloured single flowers of camellia hybrid 'Minato no haru to the rich velvet-red bell-shaped flowers of camellia japonica 'Adeyaka', whose name means ‘fascinating’.

Cornus
We offer more than thirty species and cultivars of cornus, otherwise known as dogwood, and specialize in the extremely showy southeast Asian native C. kousa.

Hydrangea
We have over hundreds of cultivars of this ever-popular flowering shrub, in every shade of pink, white, blue, and purple, and including Hydrangea macrophylla, H. serrata and other species. Fast growing, and requiring limited maintenance, they like sun but don’t respond well to bright afternoon sunshine, so a north- or south-facing wall may be the best position for them.

Magnolia
Our magnolias range from the deep, enigmatic purple of ‘Black Tulip’ to the delicate whites of ‘China Town’ and ‘Wildcat’. Flowering from early spring to early summer, they offer a foretaste of the long, sunny days to come.
