Planted side by side and flowering together at the moment are Grevillea 'Flamingo' and Viburnum burkwoodii. The Flamingo Grevillea produces so many flowers that the branches become lax under the weight and reach almost down to the ground. 'Burkwoods' Viburnum is a deciduous shrub and produces masses of sweetly scented flowers in spring before the first flush of leaves appear. The tiny buds are bright pink before opening to white flowers. Both these shrubs are hardy and are able to withstand drought conditions.
