Trees to make an entrance!

Trees to guide your eye and give va-va-voom will depend on location and planting space. More here.

Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

This small attractive tree has spectacular heart shaped burgundy coloured leaves that continually change colour throughout the year. It has an upward branching form but branches can be easily pruned to keep tidy. Offers a really distinctive look with its heart-shaped burgundy leaves. Needless to say it would make a stunning front entrance specimen!

Pyrus ussuriensis

Manchurian Flowering Pear

This is a wider spreading ornamental pear which would make a great feature tree with enough canopy when mature to frame a front entrance. It is deciduous so winter will reveal bare limbs before shooting new growth in spring. Autumn displays of colour are a mix of reds and oranges.

Banksia integrifolia 'Sentinel'

This is a small shrub with medium frost tolerance for use as a dense narrow flowering screen. Prefering full sun to light shade it produces upright lemon brush-like flowers from late summer to winter. It responds well to pruning so can be kept tidily in a narrow space llike along a walkway. Will bring in birdlife too.

Magnolia x soulangeana 'Vulcan'

This deciduous magnolia produces magnificent deep magenta flowers in late winter before green leaves re-appear and drop in autumn. So it's true flowering brilliance happens when most things are bare and colourless. A beautiful selection around a front entrance and at 6m tall can provide canopy.

Magnolia grandiflora 'Teddy Bear'

This is a stunning evergreen Magnolia growing to 4m with rounded and cupshaped leaves that are held tightly on the tree, adding to its dense form. Glossy leaves have a soft furry underside and its flowers are gloriously big and white. The size and shape of this Magnolia lends itself well with a row planting making a full and dense green wall. 

Syzygium australe 'AATS' PBR Pinnacle TM'

This is a more narrow growing Syzygium, growing to 2-3m wide is ideal for hedges and screens in narrow places. With glossy deep green foliage use it as a feature, like Italian pencil pines, down a driveway or up a footpath to the front door. 

Cercis canadensis

Eastern Redbud

This striking tree also has beautiful broad heart-shaped green leaves that turn yellow in autumn. The dark branches have a distinctive zigzag growth habit. Growing taller than 'Forest Pansy' it would make a lovely specimen tree for a canopied entrance.

Hymenosporum flavum

Native Frangipani

This tree bears highly fragrant flower clusters that start out cream and turn to yellow. It's big, glossy leaves give it a more tropical look and growing to 6m, can provide a little canopy to frame an entrance-way. We have found that in southern areas of Australia it performs best planted in the ground rather than in pots.
