Conifer lovers appreciate their vast range and diversity. Sizes range from tiny miniatures to tall stately trees. They come in the colours of the various shades of green, or grey to blue, or cream to yellow and some are even variegated.
It would be hard to find a more spectacular flowering shrub or tree than the Magnolia. The older soulangeana (also spelt soulangiana) varieties herald the end of winter with their stunning mass display of purple and white flowers on the bare branches.
In small gardens there is always a place for the bushy star-flowering stellata varieties, the tulip-shaped liliiflora varieties or one of the eight "Little Girls" which are crosses between these two.
Japanese maples, Acer palmatum and Acer japonicum varieties, are an extremely diverse range of plants in terms of size, shape and leaf colour. There are Purple Japanese Maples, Green Japanese Maples or even Variegated Japanese Maples.
Deciduous trees and Shrubs
Deciduous trees are known as “Nature’s Air Conditioners”.
When planted on the northern or western side of the house, they provide shade in summer and let the light and sun through in winter.
Evergreen trees and Shrubs
Except for the conifers, the other main evergreen trees are the cultivars of Magnolia grandiflora. These all have big shiny, dark green leaves and scented white flowers. They are great as either specimen or screening trees.
