Trees - ever fancied growing one in your garden, but worried about it getting too big? They're not all giants and our range features deciduous and evergreen trees for all sizes of garden. Some can even be grown in large containers on the patio.
Liriodendron tulipifera, Tulip PoplarGrown 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 GumCommonly 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
