One has to see the “flowering hedge” or “4 season’s hedge” like a painting canvas. As the succession of the seasons goes on, the painting changes, the colours and the scents vary. It must be a permanently interesting display.
Height at maturity: Approx 2m (6.6').
Interest: All year round.
Planting Distances: Approximately every 1.5m (4.9').Although when planting a screening hedge of only 1 species we would advise planting every 80cm (31.5"), in the case of a mixed flowering hedge we are looking for each plant to grow without competing with its neighbour and give its best.
Pruning: It is better not to cut this flowering hedge. Blossoms will be even more beautiful.
