For low-maintenance garden beauty, flowering shrubs are an invaluable backbone. I so wish I'd planted more when I first arrived at Perch Hill. I have now put that right with kolkwitzia, long and prolific flowering and good for picking too. Unlike other shrubs, this does not form a dull blank without its flowers but looks good from early spring and is colourful in autumn.
