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.
