Cercis siliquastrum (Large Plant)

Judas Tree

Also known as the Judas Tree, Cercis siliquastrum is a bushy, well-branched tree, which can be suitable for smaller gardens. The rosy-pink blooms are actually produced on the older wood stems, giving a lovely pendant effect.

The heart-shaped leaves are attractive, and appear after the flowers, and turn lustrous yellow by autumn. The Judas Tree is a true architectural plant, and looks especially impressive when in bloom during the spring. Some of the most spectacular spring colour for the garden! Height and Spread: up to 10m (32').

Heptacodium miconioides (Large Plant)

Seven Son Flower Tree

Heptacodium is an unusual shrub for the garden; it may look exotic, but plants are fully hardy and there are plenty of reasons to grow one in your garden.

The foliage is also attractive hanging in elegant pairs of glossy green leaves.

Heptacodium miconioides can be grown either as a shrub or compact, manageable tree in the garden, so is ideal for small gardens. Plants are quick-growing and easy to maintain. Height: 6m (20'). Spread 3m (10').

Each spring, Bay trees are smothered with clusters of pale yellow flowers which are highly attractive to bees. Laurus nobilis also holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height: up to 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').

Euonymus europaeus 'Red Cascade' (Large Plant)

Spindle

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.

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').
