Mid-Green Foliage Selections

For the designer, foliage colour is just as an important consideration as the form of the tree and its function in the landscape. More soothing to the eye than lime green, here we focus on the crispness of mid-green selections.

Think about all the variations of green in nature and the emotions that colour evokes. Almost always it is considered calming and tranquil, natural, safe and harmonious.  Green is the most balanced of colours making it a stable influence on us. Seldom would we feel anything other than relaxed and refreshed in a green environment regardless of its shade.

But there are many shades of green and these can vary in intensity. For the designer, foliage colour is just as an important consideration as the form of the tree and its function in the landscape.

Mid-Greens

Mid-green is a medium shade of green similar to forest green or pea green.  It plants well with other greens and purples, even pale purple. For contrast, team with pale yellow or orange. Depending on the depth of mid-green, go burnt orange; such a useful blend with the mix of evergreen and deciduous trees in autumn.

This striking tree has beautiful, broad heart-shaped green leaves which turn yellow in autumn. Often multi-trunked, the branches have a distinctive zigzag growth habit. Blossom like flowers appear from late winter to early spring, starting off as deep red coloured buds and opening to pink. In summer, long, flat leguminous seedpods develop and can hang onto the tree until winter. 30cm/14L 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L 150L
