Classic trees that have withstood the test of time

Tried and tested over the years and still proving to be very popular due to their great performance in the garden.

Photinia robusta

Red Leaf Photinia

This tree will always appear on lists because of its large leaf and dense form. The added bonus is in its outstanding red colour on new growth turning green as it matures. It has small white flowers bourne in spring followed by red fleshy fruit. A classic selection for clipped hedges or dense screens. A retro favourite, we have material ready in 30cm and 50 litre containers ready to plant.

Jacaranda mimosifolia


This has got to be one of the most recognisible trees especially in summer when it is a mass of brilliant purple, bell-shaped flowers. it is an elegant tree with fine foliage that offers good open form and dappled canopy in summertime. We can never imagine not growing this one. We have material in 20cm, 40cm, 50 litre, 100 litre and 200 litre bags.

Banksia integrifolia

Coastal Banksia

This distinctive native tree is another specimen that will always appear on lists particularly due to its rough patterened bark and long green leaves with a silver underside. And those amazing cylindrical pale yellow flowers produced from Summer to Winter are one of the most distinctive native flowers around. We have a moderate supply in a number of forms including 50 containers and 100 litre bags.

Laurus nobilis

Bay Tree

The delightful Bay Tree. This is an upright, hardy, evergreen tree with deep green foliage. Ideal for topiary and used extensively for cooking, they have had resurgence of late due to the trend in Mediterranean gardens. The yellow buds offer a great contrast against the green foliage. We have good numbers ready to go now in 40cm containers.

Corymbia citriodora

Lemon-scented Gum

A beautiful, tall growing Corymbia (syn. Eucalyptus) with a distinctive, often powdery white to grey coloured bark which curls and flakes off in spring. Its leaves are green, long and slender with an amazing, strong lemon fragrance when crushed. Its strong scent is a distinguishing attribute, with the essential oils produced from this variety often being used in fragrances as well as insect repellents. In summer and autumn, feathery white flowers appear, making it a good source of food for honey bees.

Magnolia grandiflora 'Little Gem'

Little Gem Magnolia (evergreen)

This is a lovely tree which flowers from an early age, producing beautiful creamy white, saucer shaped flowers in spring and summer. Leaves are a classic glossy deep green colour with furry brown undersides forming a nice compact evergreen tree with a dense covering of foliage. A hardy and reliable variety which makes it a consistently solid performer in the landscape.
