Bonjour, @Woollie! What are your new shrubs?

.Purchased simple easy grow Shrubs that will hopefully not let me down,,Still not got over the loss of my Monkey Puzzle Tree, 3 years I have taken care over it...... and it just browned and died...Shrubs..St. Johns Wort , Hidcote the type grows to about 1 metre and lot and lots of yellow flowers..very reliable and have had at every home I have lived in...Hydrangea Blue Wave..flat and lacy looking flowers.
Two Lavenders Papillon Rose a typical French Type Flowers like bunny ears. Buddleja a butterfly bush to attract the butterflies:)lots of plants for our Flower Baskets..More to buy soon as this is the year I am determined to get more colour...

@Woollie, The lacy looking flowers of Hydrangea Blue Wave sound like they look lovely.
