Summer Ready Trees

These lovelies are roaring to go into a beautiful landscape, but as with all summertime plantings, make sure you keep them irrigated particularly over multiple days of high heat.

Hymenosporum flavum

Native Frangipani

Commonly known as the native Frangipani, although not related to the exotic form, this tree bears highly fragrant flower clusters that start out cream and turn to yellow. It is a rainforest tree native to Queensland and New South Wales and its large, glossy leaves give it a tropical look. Growing to 8 metres in ideal conditions, it is capable of providing a nice canopy and the flowers are great for attracting birds and native bees.

Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Lipan'

Crepe Myrtle (mauve)

This tree has spectacular mauve flowers borne in clusters in late summer. It has a beautiful compact growth habit with dark green leaves changing to orange before falling.

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.

Magnolia grandiflora 'Little Gem'

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.

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.

Jacaranda mimosifolia

Jacaranda

It has got to be one of the feature trees of summer! And you need to be quick in the earlier months of the year to secure stock. For those people with Jacaranda already planted - Well done! We hope you are enjoying one of the most notable summer displays going around!
