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').

Liquidambar styraciflua

Sweet Gum

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').

Green Beech (Hedging)

Fagus sylvatica, Common Beech

Perfect hedging or screens, Green beech can be grown to almost any height required and will maintain a good density and tidy form, only needing to be clipped once or twice a year. Its growth forms a thick, interwoven hedge that is ideal for security as well as looking extremely decorative too, Fagus sylvatica tends to hold most of its leaves over winter, even though they have died off and sheds them in spring as the new growth appears, helping to keep privacy to a maximum. Supplied as 50 - 80 cm bareroots (20 - 31"). Height: 12m (39’). Spread: 8m (26’). Planting distance: 30cm (12"). More info

Hornbeam (Hedging)

Carpinus betulus

Perfect for native hedging, the hornbeam is also commonly seen as a large tree. If kept to the size required it will soon form an impressive part of any hedgerow. The leaves will turn a golden yellow colour in autumn and when they fall, they will reveal fluted, grey coloured branches that will continue to look good throughout the winter months. Supplied as 50 - 80 cm bareroots (20 - 31") Height: 12m (39’). Spread: 8m (26’). Planting distance: 45cm (18"). More info

Tulip Tree

Liriodendron tulipifera, Tulip Poplar

Grown for its magnificent large, glossy foliage, Liriodendron tulipifera makes a remarkably eye catching tree for the larger garden. The distinctly shaped leaves turn from green to a buttery shade of gold in a spectacular autumn display. With maturity, the Tulip Tree becomes decorated with large, individual tulip shaped, green-white summer flowers that are followed by cone-like fruits - although flowering may not occur for 10 years or more. This RHS AGM species forms a vigorous, large columnar tree that requires plenty of space to be appreciated at its best. Height: 20m (65'). Spread: 10m (32'). More info

Nyssa sylvatica (Large Plant)

Black Gum, Sour Gum

Commonly known as the Black gum Tree, Nyssa sylvatica, is a deciduous, slow growing tree which has elegant, sweeping branches which form a loosely conical shape over time. Native to America, where it is commonly known as "Tupelo", it is widely known for its spectacular Autumn displays when the foliage will turn an array of reds and oranges to become ablaze with colour before they finally fall to reveal the intricate shapes of the bare branches. A worthy specimen for any woodland garden although it can take 20 years or more to reach its full height. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). More info
