Lovely shapes and colour combinations there! Is it kousa?

Scent is all important, isn't it?  I am so very aware of it this year.  The roses are quite wonderful.  Love your sage, and the C. Batandieri looms really good.  I'm dying to have a cornus.

It has been a great year for Cornus, flowering really well. Cytisus battandieri is a fantastic wall shrub and I love the smell of pineapple from it. The yellow flowers against the grey foliage is a gorgeous contrast.

All three look good!

Yes I think it is Kousa, it never flowered until last year and then only a few blooms.

This year it excelled itself like a lot of trees here.
