Buy plants, shrubs & trees perfect for the Oriental style garden from Crocus
Don't overdo the number of plants you cultivate in your Oriental style garden and keep it more in line with the principles. Keep it simpler than the traditional English garden. However, there are still lots of fantastic plants to choose from. Japanese maples, cherry trees, camelias, peonies, hydrangeas and azaleas provide the floral bursts required, whilst the bamboos and grasses provide vertical accents. If you like some topiary, trees and shrubs trained into shapes or balls that make statement pieces; evergreens such as yew, box, juniper and osmanthus are amongst the best choices. Plenty of bold foliage can be obtained from shrubs including hostas, ferns and spotted laurel.
