Pinus Strobus Eastern White Pine

Pinus Strobus Eastern White Pine 

Pinus Strobus (Eastern White Pine) is a true blue Pine tree which adds real colour to a garden setting. Soft long needles and a smooth trunk gives Pinus Strobus an almost tropical feel. This pine can grow to quite a size but take a leaf out of the Japanese gardeners book and trim it to keep it to the size you desire.
 
These specific specimens of Pinus Strobus we are offering have had the crowns lifted to 1.6 metres above the ground level so these trees would make ideal screening trees, particularly for above-fence screening. 
Originating in North America they are found as far north as Newfoundland through Manitoba and the Appalachian mountains down to Minnesota they are evergreen and extremely hardy. They are sometimes known in the UK as Weymouth Pines named after George Weymouth who introduced these trees to the United Kingdom as far back as 1620. The Eastern White Pine tree also trims very well so it's an ideal candidate for using as privacy trees.
 
This pine grows in any soil as long as fertile and well drained. It prefers the sunniest spot you can give it.

Dryopteris Cycadina

Dryopteris Cycadina is a neat rosette type fern that is also known as the Shaggy Shield Fern or the Blackwood Fern.
An attractive low growing deciduous or semi-evergreen (depending on the climate) this shuttlecock fern originates from China and Japan and has lovely light green fronds with stems peppered with tiny black scales.

Dropteris Cycadina grows as a medium size clump with an arching habit. A beautiful little fern that works well when underplanted with Japanese Acers. As these ferns grow in woodland settings they also work so well when planted with other varieties of ferns beneath taller trees in a sheltered area.
Like most ferns the Shaggy Shield fern prefers partial shade, or full shade, and any well drained fertile soil. Max height and spread 1 metre.

Camellia Reticulata California

Camellia Reticulata California

Camellia Reticulata California was introduced in 1981 as a new variety of Reticulata. It is an evergreen, spring flowering, camellia with an average growth rate. Thanks to a large, deep rose pink flowers, this Camellia is one of the most spectacular spring blooming plants you are likely to come across. In addition to these large showy flowers, Camellia Reticulata California tends to have a nice, lengthy flowering season.

Originating in China as opposed to Japan, Camellia Reticulata differs from the better known spring flowering Camellia Japonica and the winter flowering Camellia Sasanqua in that it tends to have a more tree-forming rather than bushy habit, and can grow quite tall over time. Camellia Reticulata can be compared with other small flowering trees such as Cornus Kousa (flowering dogwoods) and Magnolias.

Camellia Reticulata California likes a shady or semi shady spot, with acidic, moist well-draining soil.

Camellia Reticulata California can be used as a garden focal point, but may also be considered as an alternative hedging choice.

Clematis Montana Rubens

Clematis Montana Rubens is also known as Clematis Pink Perfection
This variety of Clematis is an absolute show stopper - it is completely covered in the most delicately fragrant blossoms in late Spring to early Summer. Clematis Pink Perfection is a decidous climber producing light pink flowers tinged with a deeper pink to purple, as the flowers age they become lighter in colour and by the time the petals start to fall they resemble snow flakes in the breeze. The leaves of Clematis Montana are an attractive mid green colour and they develop a bronze hue later in the season, in sunny positions there can be a second wave (although fewer) blooms in late summer. 

Clematis Montana Rubens is a sturdy climber and will readily scramble over walls and fences in a cottage garden rambling way. This climber is ideal if you want to cover an unsightly corner, it looks beautiful when clambering up into a large tree or over an arbour or pergola. Clematis Rubens thrives when planted in a sunny or semi shaded position.

Growing Tip: Grow in neutral soil and if space is restricted trimming the plant back to healthy buds will restrict its overall size.  A mature plant will grow to a height of 5 metres high by 3 metres wide if unchecked.

Viburnum Davidii

Viburnum Davidii is commonly known as Viburnum David, is a lush evergreen shrub which is bushy and dense and forms a soft dome shape with long lance shaped leathery leaves of the darkest green.

As it will happily grow in both sun and shady conditions it is a very useful shrub for underplanting beneath trees, at the back of a border and is excellent for low growing ground cover. The 'umbrella' shaped cluster of white flowers are tinged with pink, these are followed by fruits, both occur at times of the year when you need them most, very early in the year and very late in the season.
 
These are dioecious plants so in order to get them fruiting you will need both male and female plants within reasonable distance of each other.
Awarded the RHS AGM  - Award of Garden Merit - always a good sign they will perform well in most gardens.
