Cornus kousa Milky Way: Abundant creamy white bracts make this small tree a wonderful sight in June.
Cornus Sibirica: A medium-sized suckering deciduous shrub forming a thicket of slender red stems, becoming bright crimson in winter. Leaves ovate, turning reddish in autumn, flowers small, cream, in flat heads; berries bluish-white.
Corylus maxima Purpurea: Purple filbert. A large shrub or small tree, with conspicuous cordate purple leaves. The colour lasts throughout the summer. Filberts carried in autumn, plentifully in a good year and location.
Evergreen shrub with silvery green leaves, not fussy about aspect or soil type. Small scented flowers later in the year. Makes an excellent broad informal hedge, it can reach 2 metres or more.
The leaves have a bold splash of gold in the centre, but the plant is as tough and drought resistant as the plain green. Suitable for hedging or screening.
Euonymus alatus: A large, spreading, deciduous shrub, the branchlets often developing conspicuous corky wings. Leaves oval, turning rosy-crimson in autumn. Flowers small, greenish, followed by purplish-red fruits splitting to reveal orange seeds
Hydrangea Annabelle: A small, bushy deciduous shrub with broadly oval leaves and very large, spherical heads of white sterile flowers to 25cm across in summer .
Ilex altaclarensis Golden King: Variegated holly. A large shrub or small tree, growing well on most sites. It has quite large spine-free leaves, the edges daubed with a broad gold splash. It is in fact female, bearing red berries in winter.
Ilex aquifolium: Common holly. We have various different types of Ilex, as standards and half standards – ideal for formal situations.
Ilex aquifolium Silver Queen: A large shrub or small to medium tree. Happy on most sites. The spiny leaves have a prominent cream margin. Makes an eye-catching, dense screen when clipped. A male form.
Ilex Nellie Stevens: A good even green holly with fewer spines than the type, this smaller female selection is quick to start bearing bright red berries
Laurus nobilis: Bay laurel. A medium to large evergreen shrub or small tree, with a dense habit. It takes well to close clipping. The deep green leaves are aromatic when crushed. Tiny white flowers are carried in spring.
Magnolia grandiflora: A breathtaking evergreen, a large shrub or medium sized tree. Succeeds on most soils. Glossy leaves make a foil for the huge creamy-coloured flowers in summer. Best planted against a wall or in full sun.
Provide them with good moisture retentive soil, good drainage and a sheltered position and they will repay you handsomely, with prominent flowers ranging from brilliant white through to deep rose pink depending on variety.

Parrotia persica: Persian ironwood. A small tree or large shrub. Tolerant of most soil types. Tiny red flowers are borne in late winter. The leaves are reminiscent of beech, but turn dazzling shades of red and orange in a favourable autumn.
A popular and versatile plant! A Photinia red robin can be used as a pleached tree, standard or half standard, mature shrub or hedging.
Prunus serrula: A small to medium-sized tree. Small pale flowers appear in spring with the slender delicate leaves. The glory of the tree is the bark: polished mahogany layers peel away in spiraling strands, revealing more vivid and shiny copper surfaces beneath.
