Acer Brilliantissimum - Shrimp-Leaved Sycamore Tree

Acer Brilliantissimum

Shrimp

Acer 'Brilliantissimum' is a striking sycamore tree that is ideal for smaller gardens. Pink young foliage that matures to yellow, then green. Attractive rounded habit: a great specimen tree. The Acer 'Brilliantissimum' is a truly eye-catching tree that offers a beautiful array of foliage colour. The leaves open shrimp pink in spring and gradually mature to a bronzed yellow over spring. Spring also sees the arrival of small yellow-green flowers, which work well against the colourful foliage.  In summer, the leaves put on their penultimate colour show as they mature to a darker green, with yellow marbling. Late summer sees the arrival of pretty clusters of red, winged fruits. One of the biggest benefits of planting this tree is its ability to add a real splash of colour in early spring and then changing interest over summer. It grows to have a beautifully rounded crown that is densely packed with the vivid leaves. The symmetrical shape of this tree makes it a great specimen and its slow growth rate and compact eventual size make it perfect for smaller spaces. This tree will do well in a range of soil types, but you should avoid planting it in exposed sites in order to protect the foliage from strong winds. This versatile tree looks particularly eye-catching when planting alongside the equally colourful Acer 'Carnival': the variegated leaves of the carnival work well with the changing colours of the 'Brilliantissimum'. For a contrasting genus, try the Catalpa ‘Aurea’: the large and beautifully bright leaves of the Catalpa sit perfectly against the ‘Brilliantissimum’. Common Name: Shrimp-Leaved SycamoreLatin Name: Acer pseudoplatanus 'Brilliantissimum'Soil: Any good, moist, well-drained soilPosition: Full sun or partial shadeFlowering period/colour: Spring/ Yellow-greenHardiness: Fully hardyHeight and spread in 20 years: 3m/3mSpecial features: Striking shrimp-pink new leaves.

Amelanchier lamarkii - Foliage

Amelanchier lamarckii

June Berry Tree

Amelanchier lamarkii, or June Berry tree, is a hardy garden tree which features snow-white flowers and bronzed leaves, with a good autumn colour. This graceful Amelanchier offers changing interest and it would be a welcome addition to any garden. In spring, young foliage shoots through and the leaves are a coppery red colour when young. The leaves are soon accompanied by a stunning shower of star-shaped flowers, which appear in abundance all over the tree. The flowers have five pure white petals and the protruding yellow stamens are the centerpiece of the pretty flowers. Come summer, the leaves mature to a deeper green colour and the purple-black berries appear in June. The clusters of glossy berries make a great natural bird feeder, but they are also edible for humans and they taste like blueberries. The berries can be enjoyed straight from the tree, or they can be cooked up as a jam. Autumn sees the final burst of colour from the foliage: the leaves put on a spectacular show of warm red and bronzed orange before falling. The 'lamarkii' is a hardy tree which makes an ideal lawn specimen: it grows to have a broadly vase-shaped habit and is relatively small when mature, making it suitable for a range of gardens. A deservedly popular tree that works well with a range of other trees: in particular, the Amelanchier Ballerina sits well against this tree as the two are remarkably similar, but the Ballerina has a slightly different habit as the branches arch over a little more. Common Name: June Berry TreeLatin Name: Amelanchier lamarckiiSoil: Fertile, moist but well-drained soilPosition: Full sun or partial shadeFlowering period/colour: March to April / white star-shaped flowersHardiness: Fully hardyHeight and spread in 10 years: 4m/3mSpecial features: Beautiful autumn leaf colour.

Cytisus battandieri - Flower

Cytisus battandieri

Pineapple Broom Tree

Cytisus battandieri, also known as the Pineapple Broom tree, is a semi-evergreen tree with highly scented yellow flowers. This tree makes a fantastic specimen and it is ideal for a sensory garden. The Pineapple Broom tree gets its unusual common name from the highly-fragranced flowers: they smell like cooked pineapple and carry the most deliciously sweet scent. The flowers are a truly eye-catching feature as they are a vivid golden yellow colour and they really stand out against the foil of the green foliage. The pea-like flowers are held in dense, upright clusters and they are present during June and July. If you want to attract wildlife to your garden, the scent of the flowers is somewhat irresistible to bees and you will find them buzzing around the flowers over summer. The summer flowers are accompanied by a mass of three-lobed silvery green-grey leaves, which can hold all year round in milder winters, making this a semi-evergreen tree. The leaves have the added attraction of a 'velvety' feel to them and they really set those summer flowers off beautifully. This Cytisus has an attractive open, spreading habit and makes an ideal lawn specimen. Equally, the 'Pineapple Broom Tree' is also a great choice for a sensory garden due to its wonderfully scented flowers. You could plant this tree on either side of a walkway or entrance to really benefit from the sweet fragrance of the flowers. In terms of partner planting, we would recommend the Laburnum Vossii as the pendant clusters of the Vossii sit beautifully against the silvery foliage of the Cytisus. Common Name: Pineapple Broom TreeLatin Name: Cytisus battandieriSoil: Any well drained soilPosition: Full sun or partial shadeFlowering period/colour: June to July/Yellow, erect clusters and are pineapple scented.Hardiness: Fully hardyHeight and spread in 20 years: 5m/3mSpecial features: Very large pineapple scented flowers which grow in erect clusters

Magnolia grandiflora - Evergreen Magnolia Tree

Magnolia grandiflora

Evergreen Magnolia Tree

The Magnolia grandiflora boasts the most beautiful, very large white flowers and glossy green foliage which holds all year round. A bold and bright tree that is perfect for adding interest in all seasons. You would be hard-pressed to find a flower as large and beautiful as this one in your average garden. The Magnolia grandiflora, also known as the 'Evergeen Magnolia', features colossal flowers, with some up to 25cm wide, which appear in late August- early September. The cup-shaped flowers have thick, creamy-white petals and really stand out. The flowers have an intense citrusy scent, with hints of lemon, which makes this the perfect choice for sensory planting. Another great feature of this tree is its very large leaves: the evergreen leaves are oblong-elliptic shaped and dark, glossy green in colour. The thick and waxy leaves often have reddish-brown hairs underneath and they offer a healthy dose of colour all year round. This tree grows to have a broad, conical shape and it’s fairly bushy, making a great screen. It looks simply stunning when paired with the Magnolia Exmouth, but if you want contrasting interest then we would recommend planting the 'Grandiflora' alongside the Photinia ‘Red Robin’ as the blushed foliage of this evergreen makes the perfect foil to the ‘Grandiflora’. Magnolia grandiflora can be trained against a wall or grown as freestanding rounded or conical large shrub or tree. Common Name: Evergreen Magnolia, Southern Magnolia, BullbayLatin Name: Magnolia grandifloraSoil: Moist, well-drained, tolerates chalkPosition: Full sun or partial shadeFlowering period/colour: August-September/WhiteHardiness: Fully hardyHeight and spread in 10 years: 3m/3m (Ultimately up to 15m but can be kept pruned.)Special features: Evergreen tree with intensely scented white flowers from mid summer to

Magnolia Royal Star - Flower

Magnolia stellata Royal Star

Magnolia Tree

Common Name: Magnolia Royal StarLatin Name: Magnolia stellata 'Royal Star'Soil: Moist soil all year round, avoid very dry or very wet soil.Position: Full sun to part shade. Flowering period/colour: March/white (fragrant)Hardiness: Fully hardy in the severest European climates (to below -20°C).Height/spread in 10 years: 2.5m-4m/2.5m-4mSpecial features: RHS Award of Garden Merit. Pale pink buds open in early spring to fragrant white flowers with attractive, narrow strap-like tepals. Deciduous habit. This is an especially fine variety of Magnolia, deservedly carrying an RHS Award of Garden Merit. The compact habit makes it very suitable for smaller gardens. Magnolia 'Royal Star' rarely reaches 5m tall, and can be little wider than it is tall. The flowers are of particular note in this variety as they appear as large white star-burst shapes against the unclothed branches. They would show particularly well, planted against a dark evergreen background. Being a statement tree of the colder months, this variety would be best planted in a location that can be easily viewed from indoors, or in a front garden.The flowers of this tree are really very striking and so it would work particularly well if planted as the highlight or dominant feature of a small garden. This is perhaps the earliest flowering of the Magnolias, and so it location should be chosen with care in areas prone to hard frost. The early flowering, however, means that this tree can provide succession flowering if planted alongside apple and pear trees, as the time of blooming is likely to precede that of the fruit tree blossom.
