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

  • 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').

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

Leyland Cypress 'Castlewellan' (Large Plant)

? Cuprocyparis leylandii 'Galway Gold', x Cupressocyparis, Cupressus leylandii

The Leyland Cypress is a popular choice for hedging in the UK, as it is fast-growing and evergreen, making a useful screening plant. Leyland Cypress 'Castlewellan' has golden foliage, which is a real eye-catcher and makes a striking evergreen specimen plant. The feathery foliage is accompanied by small, round cones later in summer.

This well known conifer can grow to 12 metres, but will take 20 years or more to reach this height. Leylandii can be clipped as a hedge, as long as this done regularly. Height: up to 25m (80'). Spread: 5m (15').
