This Summer's Hottest Feature Trees

We have tallied our emails and quote requests off our website and discovered the top eight most enquired-about trees this summer! And what beauties they are!

Magnolia grandiflora 'Teddy Bear'

A densely growing evergreen Magnolia growing to 4m with rounded and cupshaped leaves that are held tightly on the tree. It's leaves are glossy with a soft furry brown underside. Gloriously large white flowers are produced in summer and autumn. This is a very versatile tree perfect as a neat specimen tree or dense hedge. 

Pyrus calleryana 'Capital'

Ornamental Pear

This ornamental pear tree has a narrow growth habit making it suitable for a wide range of uses including lining driveways and fencelines. It produces shiny green leaves that hang vertically from branches with an attractive curl at the end. Being deciduous, its leaves turn a reddish-purple in autumn as shown which adds to its attraction. A perfect tree for tight spaces to screen out two storey developments!

Melia azedarach

White Cedar, China Berry

Melia azedarach is fast growing feature tree with showy lilac coloured flowers which are produced in summer.  It is relatively quick to establish and provides an attractive dappled canopy. Autumn foliage colour and yellow bead-like flowers produced in winter make this a year-round feature.

Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Tuscarora'

Crepe Myrtle (Hot Pink)

Crepe Myrtle makes an excellent addition to any garden due to their compact size, autumnal colour, beautiful beige-coloured smooth bark and intense flowering. 'Tuscarora' produces coral red or hot pink crinkled flowers on masse in late summer. Hats off - this is another year-round performer.

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 in May that are bigger than 'Little Gem'. It differentiates itself from other varieties by its wavy edge to its leaf and its bright pink new growth.

Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Natchez'

Crepe Myrtle (White)

Like Tuscarora' Lagerstroemia 'Natchez' offers up wonderful versatility all year- round. With a compact growth habit, autumnal colour, flaky bark and spectacular white crinkle like flowers produced on masse in late summer it is no wonder this tree has made our top 8. As a white flowering Crepe Myrtle it can suit any landscape.

Magnolia grandiflora 'Little Gem'

This is another tried and true performer. Magnolia 'Little Gem' is a lovely landscaping tree.  Like other varieties of evergreen Magnolia, it produces glossy deep green leaves all year-round and beautiful white saucer shaped flowers in autumn. This is a tree offering great contrasting colour and year round colour. 

Brachychiton populneus x acerifolius 'Jerilderie Red'

This is an attractive densely canopied tree that grows to approximately 8m tall and 7m wide. It has a bloated trunk and large lobed leaves. During the summer months, the tree is densely packed with stunning powdery-red flowers that are shaped like small bells.
