Sparoza - The South Shrubbery

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

The South Shrubbery hugs the external wall of Walled Garden and consists of two beds that surround a small circular terrace with bistro table and chairs. The space is framed by mature trees on each side - a Jacaranda mimosifolia and two Ailanthus altissima. The planting is dominated by large shrubs, a Lycianthes rantonnetii, Vitex agnus-castus and Duranta erecta in the western bed and a large sprawling Abutilon pictum ‘Thompsonii’ in the other. One plant of particular note growing on the wall next to the Abutilon is the tapeworm plant, Muehlenbeckia platyclada, grown from a cutting taken from a taverna on one of Cycladic Islands.
