Front Driveway Planting Proposals

A front driveway planting plan with undulating evergreen hummocks of box balls, and a choice of topiary cones, or topiary lollipops. The Birch tree, Betula utilis jacquemontii 'Snow Queen',  will add dappled sunlight and winter interest with the lovely white bark.

The Dwarf Cherry Laurel, Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Luyken',  is planted between the box balls with narrow dark green leaves and small white flowers in June and July.

An alternative to Dwarf Cherry Laurel is a perennial, Gaura linheimeri 'Whirling Butterflies' which flowers from from May to September, a graceful plant with pink star-shaped flower on long graceful anther like stems.
