A beautiful specimen tree that needs to be sheltered from direct sun in summer. Bare in winter, it is a true delight watching this tree shoot bright green leaves in spring, gradually turning to deep oranges and crimsons in autumn. Foliage is deeply cut and serrated, hanging delicately off weeping branches. A favourite of ours, we have stock ready for planting in 30cm, 40cm, 100L and 150L. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L 200L
This is a flashy crimson foliaged maple with dense upright branching. As a Canadian maple, it has larger leaves than the Japanese forms of maple and as its name suggests, crimson leaves follow bare limbs which turn gold and orange in autumn. A beautiful specimen tree for contrast colour and interest year round. We have good numbers in 40cm and 50cm containers ready to be planted now. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L 200L

This is a quick growing ornamental pear with a dense growth habit and upright branches.

What can we say about the Ginkgo tree that hasn't already been said? It is an old species, if not the oldest recorded, with one of the most unusual leaf forms.

'Tuscarora' lagerstroemia is another example of a year round attraction. Bare limbs in winter flush green growth in spring which turns a stunning reddish/orange in autumn.
