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.

Arbutus unedo (Large Plant)

Strawberry Tree

This striking shrub makes a superb focal point for year-round interest. Its leathery, evergreen foliage and peeling, cinnamon brown bark form a superb backdrop for the clusters of small, white, urn-shaped flowers in autumn. The dainty blooms give way to scarlet red fruits that only fully ripen in the following year, as a new set of flowers emerge.

The edible fruits of Arbutus unedo have a sharp aftertaste when eaten raw, but can be made into jams and preserves for a sweeter, guava-like flavour. This neat, compact variety is an ideal specimen shrub for a sheltered position. Although perfectly hardy once mature, Arbutus trees will appreciate a layer of fleece for winter protection when young. Perfect for coastal gardens and sheltered woodland areas. Height and spread up to: 8m (25').

Arbutus unedo f. rubra (Large Plant)

Strawberry tree

It’s easy to see why Arbutus unedo f. rubra holds an RHS AGM. This majestic evergreen forms a bushy tree or large shrub with plenty of year round interest. Beneath the evergreen foliage, the branches are enveloped in beautiful red-brown bark which gleams in the sun with a shedding, rough texture at maturity. The pretty urn shaped flowers emerge in autumn against a backdrop of leathery foliage, providing valuable late-season nectar for pollinating insects. The flowers later form rounded strawberry-like fruits which mature in the following year as new flowers develop. Although perfectly hardy once mature, Strawberry trees will appreciate a layer of fleece for winter protection when young. Perfect for coastal gardens and sheltered woodland areas. Height and spread up to: 8m (25’).

Crab Apple 'Royalty'

Korean Fir

Abies koreana

  • Strikingly different ornamental tree

Of all the conifers, the Korean Fir tree is perhaps the most enchanting. Extraordinary violet-blue cones nestle upright among the dark green foliage from an early age, at a size of just 60cm (2ft). Developing during the summer months, the cones remain a constant fascination right through to late winter. The needles of Abies koreana are wider, more rounded and softer than our native spruces, giving a full conical appearance as the branches twirl around its central stem. This captivating evergreen makes a stunning specimen tree for providing plenty of year round interest. Although this RHS AGM variety can achieve a significant size with maturity, its slow growth habit ensures that it will remain a manageable size for many years. Supplied as a single stem bareroot 20/30cm. Ultimate height: Up to 10m (32'). Spread: 6m (19'). More info

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’).
