There is nothing like that eye-catching feature tree in full flush. And something that combines beautiful structure, vibrant or unique foliage and the ability to burst out in spectacular flower is something to behold.

There are many selections to choose from to suit any time of year and here we have taken the time to list a few of our favourites. If you require more information on any of them, make sure to contact us either by phone or by email via this website. We would be pleased to provide the right solution for your specific needs.

Callistemon - These are versatile native trees with 'Bottle Brush' flowers. Great for informal hedges and screens. Try Callistemon citrinis 'Kings Park Special' or ones with soft weeping foliage like Callistemon viminalis 'Dawsons River Weeper'.   Corymbia ficifolia are grafted natives with improved vigor. They are a smaller flowering gums suitable as a feature tree for all gardens. And there are a number of colours to choose from: 'Baby Orange' (A vibrant orange), 'Baby Scarlet' (A vibrant scarlet), and Summer Beauty (Appleblossum Pink).  

Easy to spot from a distance and breath-taking in flower is Jacaranda, an iconic tree with masses of purple flowers in summertime. Crepe Myrtles offer fabulous foliage, fascinating bark and great flowering attributes in summer. Choose from 'Lipan' (mauve), 'Sioux' (hot musk pink), 'Zuni' (purple), 'Natchez' (white) and 'Tuscarora' (hot pink).  

Deciduous Magnolias are wonderful specimens that flower when leaves have fallen. In particular, check out Magnolia 'Black Tulip' and 'Vulcan'. And who can't resist the sight of an evergreen Magnolia in flower? These trees are very elegant and extremely popular for a number of uses including streetcapes, garden specimens and formal screens and hedges - 'Teddy Bear', 'Little Gem', 'Exmouth', Coolwyn Gloss and 'Kay Parris'.  

Right behind Magnolias in popularity is Pyrus. Ornamental pears make great flowering features in spring and we offer a selection to cater for everyone's needs including Pyrus 'Cleveland Select', Manchurian pear (Pyrus ussuriensis) and Pyrus 'Capital'.

Take a look at these beautiful dark purple goblet shaped flowers...just gorgeous. A deciduous magnolia which is bare in winter and flowers in spring. 40cm/27L
Small and multi-stemmed, this variety can be used as a shrub or small tree. Foliage has red tinges when young and matures to a shiny dark green, with autumn foliage providing a colourful display of orange, red and maroon. Stunningly beautiful and free-flowering, masses of violet purple flower trusses appear from summer through to autumn. Bark provides further interest as it peels, creating a mottled effect on the trunk. Relatively hardy, this variety is resistant to powdery mildew and will tolerate periods of dryness once established. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
This is an attractive shrub or small tree with a weeping habit. The leaves are green in colour, long and thin, with tiny hairs. Lovely crimson bottlebrush flowers appear in Spring and Summer, although it is known to spot flower throughout the year, attracting nectar loving birds. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
This is a stunning grafted flowering gum which produces masses of flowers in summer. Large glossy foliage is dark green in colour, highlighted by lighter green undersides. New growth emerges with a reddish tinge. Its flower colour is a beautiful, soft pink with a hint of apricot, produced over the summer months, followed by large gumnuts. Rich in nectar, this is a great bird attracting, small grafted tree.
A beautiful dense tree with small dark green glossy leaves and brown velvety underside so expected with Magnolia grandiflora varieties. It produces creamy white fragrant flowers anytime during the warmer months from November through February/March. These flowers are bigger than the popular 'Little Gem'. It differentiates itself from other varieties by its wavy edge to its leaf and its bright pink new growth. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
A very popular feature tree for small gardens. This deciduous, ornamental cherry develops a spreading flat crown with branches that droop down slightly. A beautiful display of pure white, semi double blossoms cover the tree in early to mid-spring, followed by finely serrated, pale green leaves which darken to mid green over the warmer months. In autumn, foliage turns shades of orange and red. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L
This is a small to medium sized shade tree offering glossy green foliage and pretty clusters of salmon pink, bell-shaped flowers in Summer. As a grafted tree, it is more compact in size which makes it highly suitable for domestic landscapes. Flowers are bird attracting. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L 200L
