Liquidambar styraciflua

Sweet Gum

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').

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’).
