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.
Euonymus europaeus 'Red Cascade' (Large Plant)
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’).More info
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
