GARRYA (SILK TASSEL BUSH)
(E = evergreen)
Garrya elliptica, a most decorative winter shrub, hardy enough in all but the coldest districts. In February the male plants produce an abundance of 6- to 12-in. long silky, grey-green catkins. Does reasonably well against north and east walls, but produces catkins more freely when planted against south and west walls.
