Brachychiton comes into its own during summer when the tree is amass of flowers. As the name suggests, this variety produces pink bell-like flowers that sit in clusters. As a grafted tree, it is more compact in size which makes it highly suitable for domestic landscapes. Makes for a wonderful specimen tree. Leaf size and flower colour are slightly different to others we currently grow.
A very popular line, this is a small deciduous tree that produces spectacular white crinkle like flowers in late Summer. It has a beautiful growth habit with dark green leaves changing to orange before falling. Even it's bark is fabulous and a feature in winter when the tree is bare. In our top 10 of specimen trees, we have material ready to go in 40cm, 50cm and 100 litre bags.
Another beauty, this hot pink flowering Crepe Myrtle has small oval shaped green leaves that turn a stunning reddish/orange in autumn. With red and yellow foliage in autumn and a beautiful smooth trunk in winter, this tree has year-round interest. Our stock is looking great and is ready now in 30cm and 50cm containers.
One of the tallest Crepe Myrtles we grow, Tuscarora produces hot pink flowers on masse in late summer. Flower heads form on new growth and are encouraged by winter pruning. The smooth bark is beige coloured with red-brown streaks. A striking tree and striking flower colour, the choice size from our point of view is 50cm at 2m+ tall.
Stunningly beautiful free-flowering, multi-stemmed shrub or small tree. Shiny dark green leaves with red tinges when young, with masses of purple flowers. This is slightly smaller growing than 'Tuscarora' or 'Sioux' with a mature height of around 4m. We have material available ready to plant now in 40cm and 50cm containers.
This is an evergreen Magnolia growing to 4m with rounded and cupshaped leaves. Foliage sits tighter on the tree giving it a fuller, denser appearance than other varieties. As is customary with Magnolia, beautiful large white flowers are produced in spring and autumn. We have good numbers ready to go now in 30cm and 40cm containers.
This is a beautiful tree with dark green glossy leaves and brown velvety underside so expected with Magnolia. It produces creamy white fragrant flowers in May that are enormous! It differentiates itself from other varieties by its wavy edge to its leaf and its bright pink new growth. We encourage you to look at our 30cm and 40cm stock which is ready to plant now.
This fast growing tree is probably our most iconic summer variety due to its purple, bell shaped flowers that cover the tree in summer making them very easy to spot in the landscape. Offering good canopy cover and 'stand-out' summer appeal, is it a long-time favourite of many people. Now is the right time to buy and we have some big specimens available now in 200 litre bags for instant effect.
