Wondervollís versatility impresses - itís great as a screen, a hedge, or a lawn specimen tree and has the bonus of autumn fruit. It grows quickly to form a bushy tree with olive-green leaves, and late summer brings red flowers, followed by oval green fruit. Fruit yield is enhanced by planting in groups, and adequate summer water. Grows 3 x 2 metres.
A small compact evergreen perennial with masses of bright blue, yellow-centered flowers for long periods from spring through to autumn. Great in garden borders, en masse along a path, in patio pots and even as a feature in a low basket. If it ever gets a little wayward, simply prune heavily; the regenerated growth will be as good as ever.
An upright growing shrub fuchsia from the West Indies with velvet-textured, dark-bronze leaves and beautiful bright salmon-red 'extended-tear-drop' flowers. It's an excellent background bush for gardens from city to countryside, and it can readily be trained as a standard too.
