The Highlights

    • Native and small, bushy tree
    • Very tolerant of coastal, exposed, polluted and damp sites and is popular with wildlife
    • Offers wonderfully varied seasonal interest, starting with dark green, deeply lobed, glossy foliage
    • Beautiful creamy white flowers in May & June
    • Commonly used in native hedging mixes
    • Has sharp thorns on its branches which provides a safe nesting place for birds
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
