To escape from the play-deck, a slide brings you down to another level of the garden, whizzing past exotic plants so you feel transported to another land. Griselinia littoralis provide year-round colour, flowering in spring with purple fruits in autumn. Added texture from Fargesia nitida (fountain bamboo) is a brilliant option for smaller, exotic themed spaces.
Using bright, variegated shrubs such as Euonymus to build the maze was a great idea to provide structure and lead to sensory surprises along the way. These hardy, robust plants are easy to look after, making them the ideal shrub for a busy garden.
