The Highlights

    • Unrivaled for Autumn displays of colour
    • Winner of RHS Award of Garden Merit
    • Dense, rounded pyramidal crown makes this an excellent shade tree
    • Fully hardy and will grow in almost any soil
    • Flowers throughout Spring
    • Grows up to 12x8m
    • 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
