Evergreen shrubs form the backbone of any garden design and are essential for providing structure and all year round interest
Evergreen shrubs are versatile and remain effective throughout the year and are perfect for that permanent structure in your garden. Their evergreen foliage is most appreciated during the long dark winter days as they will provide colour and joy to the garden when its most needed. Evergreen trees do lose leaves but loses its leaves gradually and not because of adaptation to a cold or dry season but to replace the aging leaves throughout the year. The Latin binomial term sempervirens means always green and refers to the evergreen nature of the plant, such as Boxwood sempervirens.
Evergreen varieties include most species of conifers, ivy, eucalyptus, camellia and many more. Many grow into massive specimens or dwarf selections but you could try planting evergreen shrubs between brightly coloured plants or into mixed borders for adding effect. We stock a wide range of evergreen shrubs of all sizes, from the more common types to the unusual, more interesting varieties.
Evergreen shrubs are popular in gardens. Decorative all year, they form beautiful hedges.

Large or small, for sun or shade, to plant in the garden or in pots, in front of the house or on the terrace. You will inevitably find the evergreen shrub you need in our wide range!
