Sparoza - Shrubbery

The photograph at the top of this page shows the Shrubbery in April (Photo Lucinda Willan)

To the right of the front door which faces west the "shrubbery" is a wide bed with roses including large specimens of ‘Iceberg’ and Rosa hugonis planted by Jaqueline Tyrwhitt in the early 1970s, as well as tender plants that benefit from the sheltered position such as Melianthus major, Echium candicans and Plumbago auriculata. The wall of the house accommodates a Macfadyena unguis-cati which is cut right down every few years but soon races back up to the roof.
