An unusual front garden in England by Peter Merrett Gardening

Ulmus parvifolia 'Yatsubusa'

Review Notes:A Carl Young introduction with very interesting elongated medium green leaves to 1 1/2 inches. It has the same corky bark as 'Seiju' but takes a little longer to develop, but it grows a little faster. Ultimate height is perhaps 8-10 feet.

Looking down the garden towards the main pond and the drive, with my White van used for worrying the native population!

The green branches on the right are Ulmus parviflora 'Yatsuba', alongside the stream to the bridge are a tiny Aruncus whose name escapes me, Libirtea peregrinans 'Gold Edge' and by the base of the bridge Hypericum orientale.

Beyond the bridge the big green block is Corydalis taliensis, Tradescantia 'Concord Grape' and Iris millesii.

By the wall at the drive edge is Pitiosporum tobra 'varigatum', Rosa banksi and Coronilla glauca 'Citrina' with Parochetus africanus running around under them.
