Cherry 'Iford Flowering'

Prunus, Ornamental Cherry

 Customer Rating
A fantastic opportunity to plant this stunning, historic tree in your own garden! At the turn of the 19th century Harold Peto, architect and garden designer, found a small and completely pendulous pale shell pink flowering cherry on one of his plant collecting trips to the East. He named it the Iford Cherry and it was planted on the Iford terraces and trailed down the terrace banks and along the paths creating a truly magnificent sight by all accounts of the time. In 1999 the present owners of Iford Manor decided to propagate from the only surviving tree which by then had only one living branch which was no thicker than a pencil. Graft wood was taken and the tree died a few weeks later. Three trees were raised from the grafts and became the mother wood for the trees now for sale.

This delightful and historic tree is ideal for growing in a container or as a small tree in the garden. It flowers in early spring and has a marvellous bronze/red leaf colour during the Autumn. Decorative Tree Height to 1-1.5m. Flowers early April.

Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

Eastern Redbud

 Customer Rating
  • A compact tree for small gardens, creating colour in every season
A perfect choice for small gardens, this slow-growing deciduous tree or large shrub bears heart-shaped, red-purple leaves, which age to vibrant shades of orange and red in autumn. If grown in a warm and sheltered spot, this variety will produce a smattering of delightful pink-purple, pea-like flowers in the spring, which are borne along the bare branches before the leaves. A magnificent specimen tree for small gardens, Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' can also be grown as a large shrub. This handsome RHS AGM variety is a real talking point and makes a lovely contrast to lime green foliage plants. Height and spread: 10m (30’).

Euonymus europaeus 'Red Cascade' (Large Plant)

Spindle

A much-discussed plant, as it can sometimes be spotted in hedgerows in the UK, and is recognisable by its colourful seed heads. The wood from the Spindle Bush was originally used for making spindles, hence the name.

Euonymus europaeus 'Red Cascade' is a large, deciduous shrub, which is fairly un-noticeable during the summer, but by autumn the foliage has turned an amazing scarlet. The autumn colour is phenomenal! Then, as if that wasn’t enough, the small flowers fade, and winged fruits appear, which are orange and red. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2.5m (8.2’).
