You do not very often see Euonymus japonicus growing in Cornish hedgerows but here a bush full of seed pods which are turning red nicely but no colour on the leaves yet.
We have all missed the first flowering at Caerhays of another new clethra species. Clethra monostachya has leaves similar to Clethra delavayi but a different growth habit or so it appears so far.

Cornus kousa ‘Gloria Birkett’ had the best and largest red fruits on any cornus in the garden last year. They are hanging in profusion and swelling but not turning red just yet. I wonder why this exceptional variety is not more widely available?
