Big, bold and beautiful. Create an instant, eye-catching feature with these classic trees that have year-round staying power.

Callistemon citrinus 'Kings Park Special'

This native shrub or small tree is very hardy and adaptable to a wide range of locations and soils. It is generally trouble-free, growing to about 4m high and 2m across. The flowers appear as beautiful crimson spikes which are borne in spring and summer. Requiring little to no maintenance, this variety flowers over a lengthy period and the slender, green foliage forms a neat, rounded appearance.

Corymbia ficifolia 'Summer Beauty'

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.

Jacaranda mimosifolia

Jacaranda

This fast-growing tree is an elegant specimen with soft, green foliage which turns yellow in winter before shedding. Flowering occurs in summer, when purple, bell-shaped blooms are produced, covering the canopy. The seed pods are very distinct fleshy curved green pods that eventually dry and open. It is an attractive open tree with branches upwardly ascending. A great summertime feature due to its stunning purple flowers.

Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Tuscarora'

Crepe Myrtle (Hot Pink)

This deciduous tree has small oval shaped green leaves which turn a stunning reddish/orange in autumn. The most striking part of the tree is the beautiful display of vibrant, hot pink, crinkled flowers which appear in late summer. Flowers form on new growth, and so are encouraged by winter pruning. Bark peels off to reveal a smooth trunk which is beige in colour with red-brown streaks.

Magnolia grandiflora 'Kay Parris'

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.

Pyrus calleryana 'Cleveland Select'

Ornamental Pear

A medium sized, fast growing tree with a 3-6m spread and symmetrical, pyramid shape. Branches grow dense and upright, making this variety particularly useful where space is a little more limited. This tree has fantastic scarlet red hues during Autumn and puts on yet another show in spring with an abundance of brilliant white blooms followed by brown coloured fruits. Although this variety thrives in well drained, rich soils, it will also adapt well to a range of soils including areas with heavy soils suffering from occasional wet to dryer conditions.
