In my yard: Cottinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ . considered a tree but I grow it as a shrub, whacking it back to the ground each spring to keep the height lower and make it bush out. easily grows tall in a season. glows purple with the sun behind it.
Adrian Bloom extended his father's original 6 acre display garden with another 6 acres of beds of his own design. These beds are much deeper and incorporate trees and shrubs with perennial flowers and grasses.
