We cannot help our passion for Japanese Cloud Trees at Paramount Plants. Each of our Cloud Trees has been carefully sourced directly from Japan, where each unique cloud tree takes many years to develop and mature.  Once shaped however, they will make a striking addition to any garden or terrace, transforming your outside space in an instant. Cloud Trees once mature are relatively easy to maintain, requiring little more than pruning once or twice per year.  Cloud Trees take their name from their skilfully created shape, which resembles clouds on branches.  Plant in full sun or partial shade.

Here are a few summer observations from a well-known Japanese garden in London’s Holland Park. Read more Plants for Japanese Gardens – a summer perspective!
