An evergreen border design for amazing colour and interest all year round

I believe every border has a personality of its own, and the evergreen border can be described as ‘Constant’. This border is a constant throughout the year, and it never ceases to amaze with its colourful combination of evergreen shrubs and hardy perennials. It’s a vivid tapestry of everlasting colour.  Splashes of lime green, sunny yellow, and vibrant orange and red emerge from among the glossy green foliage of Skimmia Rubella and the rich aubergine leaves of Pittosporum Tom Thumb, creating a sense of opulence and exuberance. It's a border that remains constant and yet with glorious explosions of colour that keep the garden alive throughout all seasons.
