Yet another "hedge" in my back garden. A "Buxus Microphyalla V Japonica (Japanese Box) in the front right hand side foreground. On the left hand side of the photo I have Nandinas..they are positioned either side of the path & when they turn crimson it is an absolute picture (the 2nd pic is just to show the Nandina's crimson colour ).

Patricia, looks really great. I think Nandinas ( or Sacred Bamboo as we used call them) are very under-rated. They are tremendous plants for borders and low hedges - hardy and very attractive.

Love your garden Patricia, like the all the bits (windmill, stone garden peices, etc) and pieces that set it off. Love the train also. :D
