Fran Cleland included these comments with her photos: 'Marjory Palmer' was popular as a hedge in her heyday. Susan Irvine says she is quick to rebloom, and describes her as a short grower. She is fairly shaded in the Alister Clark Garden, I suppose hence the vibrancy of the colour. She grows there next to 'Lady Mann', and they are perfect companions.
