Blechnum brasiliense 'Volcano'

Dwarf Brazilian Tree Fern, Hard Fern

  • New in 2015
  • Hardy down to -5c in the UK
Are Dicksonia tree ferns too large or expensive for you? We've found the answer - try the dwarf Brazilian tree fern instead! Blechnum brasiliensis 'Volcano' is an exciting new find for the home gardener, only recently introduced to the UK, but sure to be the next big thing! Compact plants lend themselves well to growing in patio pots; and throw up huge fronds up to 70cm (28") tall. The young fronds unfurl in a bronze volcanic hue turning a shiny green as they open. A relative of our native Deer Fern, this fern thrives in low light, so it's perfect for giving an exotic touch to your home and garden. Despite its tropical origins, Blechnum brasiliense is hardy enough to be grown in most UK gardens, tolerating temperatures down to -5C (23F) but will appreciate a sheltered spot and some winter protection. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 70cm (28").

Height and spread: 3m (10').

Liquidambar styraciflua

Sweet Gum

  • New in 2015
Prized for its glorious foliage, this vibrant deciduous tree will rival any Maple. Liquidambar styraciflua has a broadly conical habit that makes a superb specimen for larger gardens. Although Sweet Gum enjoys an acid or neutral soil, it is particularly useful in tricky chalky areas as it is lime-tolerant, given sufficient depth of soil. Inconspicuous late spring flowers are followed by clusters of fascinating spiky fruits. The palmate foliage of the Sweet Gum emerges on corky shoots in spring, and remains a lovely fresh green colour, before turning to fiery shades of red, orange and purple. This majestic tree requires little maintenance once established and makes a wonderful specimen as a stand-alone feature or grown at the edge of woodlands. Height: 25m (80'). Spread: 12m (40').
