If you’re not sure, it maybe a fedge, rather like the one growing at RHS Rosemoor. It was born around four years ago, when around fifteen varieties and mixed colours were planted. The willow is harvested each year and the stems have been used to create the fedge.
The fedge will be clipped as it grows, to maintain the geometric design.
The colours are planted in groups.
See how the fedge blends with the background, creating strong vertical lines?
I was at Rosemoor for the sculpture in the garden, my first visit for several years. Each winter they have the sculpture exhibition, it blends beautifully with naked trees, the curves of the valley, hard landscaping and excellent design like the fedge.
And of course there is the hobbit house!
