Hedges give a touch of neatness to a garden, but need occasional pruning.
Our garden has a variety of hedges. Beside the driveway – in a raised garden – we have a small, shaped hedge of Duranta ‘Sheena’s gold’.
On the other side of the driveway is a tall hedge of Orange Jessamine (Murraya paniculata), which makes a good privacy screen. After rain, this beautiful screen is covered with creamy white flowers, which smell like orange blossom. Both of these hedges are underplanted with Lomandra Tanika, which adds a touch of softness.
