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.
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.

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.

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.

Camellia Japonica Triphosa 
This elegant and rare variety of Camellia was originally introduced in France, Camellias have never really gone out of fashion per se but at the height of their popularity, these large and pure blooms were highly sought after. Camellias are fairly slow growing so where budget permits it is best to buy the largest specimens to achieve the greatest impact.

Camellia Japonica Triphosa looks beautiful in a mixed border or Woodland garden and these stunning, pure white, cup-shaped flowers with a glorious yellow centre appear in clusters in early Spring. They provide a fabulous contrast with the glossy, leathery evergreen leaves.

Camellia Japonica Triphosa prefers a shady or semi shady spot and slightly acidic, moist, free draining soil. A light prune just once a year after flowering is all that is necessary to keep this Camellia in great shape. Camellia Triphosa will also thrive when grown in a container for the patio. Remember to feed it once a year with Camellia plant food (Ericaceous plant food that is slow release) and keep it watered.
