Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We took a break from NGS openings in 2021/22 but we’ll be back in 2023!

I have quite a few varieties of #photinia in my garden and in my opinion this one has the most dramatic #foliage ❤️ #photinia-pink-crispy #foliagefriday #jacarandadrive #mygardentoday 💚

‘Pink Crispy’ gets overlooked in the summer months but she really comes into her own in the winter! #foliagefriday #photinia #photiniapinkcrispy #jacarandadrive #mygardentoday 💚

The ever changing colours on ‘Pink Crispy’ ensures that there’s always something of interest on this shrub during the winter months 💕 #foliagefriday #photinia #photiniapinkcrispy #evergreen #variegatedfoliage Swipe ⬅️ to see the differences. 💚

If you’re looking for a shrub that’s continually changing colour then this is the one for you! It hasn’t grown much since it was planted two years ago but its eventual height will only be 1.5-2.00 metres so that’s not surprising. #foliagefriday #photinia #photiniapinkcrispy #variegated #evergreen #mygardentoday 💚

This one is fine in sun or part shade, Mark 👍 Mine gets some sun in the morning but then it’s in shade for the rest of the day. @solly1961

First planted in November 2018 the colour changes on ‘Pink Crispy’ since then have been quite surprising. Swipe left ⬅️ to see what I mean. I quite like today’s foliage but I think I prefer it in its 2018 colours! #foliagefriday #photinia #photiniapinkcrispy #loveitorhateit #mygardentoday

I’m not sure I like the combination of the variegated leaves with the insipid new pinkish growth on ‘Pink Crispy’ 😳 What do you think? #photinia #pinkcrispy #evergreen #loveitorhateit

Mmmm I see what you mean, although I like the new pink leaves but maybe not with those leaves.... 😬😊

Maybe if it's going to bug you 🤔 I've just looked at the other photos you have and the leaves on the first photo you posted look great 👌 💚

It as you said, insipid. I can’t say I’m very keen 😔

You’re right, Ange, it did look good when it was first planted. Maybe the wet weather has leeched all the vibrant colour from the leaves. It’s definitely not looking good at the moment 😢 @anges

I loved it when I first bought it, Sue, but it’s not as vibrant now as it was then. If you scroll back through the previous photos of it you’ll see what I mean. @suerichards 😘

A dry, bright and sunny morning was all the #mondaymotivation I needed to get my new #photinia planted. An hour or so later, just as I was putting in the last of the #crocus bulbs, the heavens opened and I got soaked 👩‍🌾🌧😂 12/11/2018
