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: 3m (10’).

Katsura Tree

Cercidiphyllum japonicum

 Customer Rating
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
A fast growing tree with a long period of interest that will delight the senses! Tiny red flowers decorate the naked branches of the Katsura Tree in spring, before the young rounded, leaves break bud in a glorious display of bronze pink foliage. As summer progresses, the foliage colours to a fresh shade of bright green, before changing once again with the autumn to a vivid gold and orange. Even the fallen autumn leaves will provide interest by filling the air with a sugary fragrance of candy-floss that is almost irresistible. Cercidiphyllum japonicum holds an RHS AGM and makes a superb multi-stemmed specimen tree for a small garden or woodland area. Supplied in 9cm pot. Ultimate Height and spread: 10m (32ft).

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').
