Acer Palmatum is also known as the Japanese Maple and sometimes as the Japanese Smooth Maple tree. These Acers originate from lower altitudes throughout central and southern Japan, they originally grew under the canopy of larger trees in woodlands.
Acer Palmatum prefers a moist, rich, well drained soil in partial shade and should be sheltered from winds to prevent leaf burn. It’s very important not to let Acers dry out during the hot summer months. They will produce magnificent leaf colours in the autumn, vibrant oranges and shades of red, creating spectacular shapes and sometimes decorative bark texture and colour.

Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum is also known as Japanese Maple.
For many centuries Japanese gardeners have been developing cultivars from Japanese Acers found in Japan and also in China and Korea. Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum is one such cultivar, it is a faster growing variety of red acer. With wine red coloured leaves - including the new branches turning to bright red in autumn.

This Japanese Maple is a hardy deciduous tree which does best in partial shade and care should be taken to protect it from cold winds - this will burn the leaves.
Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum prefers a neutral to acidic well drained soil and it flowers between April to May, it achieves a max height of 4 metres and a spread of 2-3 metres. It is possible to grow in a large container but it is imperative to keep it well watered.  Acers are slow growing and the maximum heights will generally take many years to achieve.  Specimen Acers available from circa 7-9 years of age upwards.  Other purple/red acers include acer palmatum dissectum garnet and acer palmatum tropenburg.

Buxus Square Cubes

Buxus Sempervirens is also known as Box or Boxwood and has long been a top choice for topiary and for low growing clipped hedging – since Roman times, in fact. These very attractive Boxwood Topiary Squares are the latest addition to our ever-growing topiary range.

Boxwood topiary squares or cubes are best kept low and tightly clipped but they can also grow to be quite tall if you wish. Use Boxwood Topiary Squares as the basis for a parterre or formal hedge or to create a topiary focal point in your garden. You can combine several Boxwood Topiary Squares to create geometric shapes. If you have a balcony or terrace, a pair of Buxus Square Cubes will look most attractive in terracotta pots.

Boxwood has many characteristics which make it highly suited to topiary. It is evergreen, very dense-growing and can be clipped without it adversely affecting the plant. Box is slow growing so that gardeners can get away with clipping once per year. Buxus Sempervirens has very attractive deep rich green foliage with the small leaves densely packed. The new foliage emerges in summer in a lighter, softer green.

In addition, Boxwood is very hardy, happily withstanding an impressive range of extreme climate conditions. It is easily grown and thrives in full sun or partial shade.

Cupressus Leylandii trees are often referred to as simply Leylandii, these are fast growing evergreen conifers that are mainly used for hedging and evergreen screening.  Cupressus trees make excellent roosting places and may also be used as nest sites for birds such as greenfinches, robins, dunnocks, wrens.

Also available in a golden colour - Cupressus Leyland Goldrider and the ever popular Leylandii Castlewellan Gold view our entire collection of Conifers .

Cupressus leylandii are excellent screening trees if correctly maintained. Leylandii should be trimmed back twice or three times each year to keep their shape. 
Leyland Cypress should not be cut back too hard beyond the green foliage as they do not re-shoot from wood. So they need consistent trims each year rather than letting them go and cutting back hard.
Leylandii trees are still the fastest and most cost effective way of achieving a neat tall hedge or screen in the garden.
They grow up to 1m per year (2-3ft).

Hydrangea Paniculata Limelight Tree Form - Half Standard
 
Unlike Hydrangea Macrophylla, Hydrangea Paniculata can be grown as beautiful little trees that are highly ornamental when correctly trained and shaped. Paniculata Hydrangeas have a more upright growth habit than the mophead hydrangea and can be pruned at any time (apart from when they are blooming or about to bloom, of course). 
 
These Hydrangea Paniculata Limelight Tree Form plants have been carefully trained as half standard trees. With their spectacular showy cone shaped blooms that change colour throughout their lengthy flowering season, this topiary style half standard form suits Hydrangea Paniculata Limelight very well. 
 
Hydrangea Paniculata Limelight Tree Form has many prized ornamental features. Its prolific blooms begin in mid-summer and last well into the autumn. The showy blooms emerge as beautiful, conical shaped flowers that are up to 30 cm long. In colour, they are bright lime green at the outset with hues of creamy yellow. By autumn, the flowers will have turned white and finally a rich pink as winter approaches. 

Hydrangea Paniculata Limelight is one of the most popular of the paniculata varieties. It offers a generous succession of interest that lasts from July until January, as the flowers dry gracefully on the stem and add an architectural interest, even in the depths of winter. 
 
Hydrangea Paniculata Limelight will grow in full sun or partial shade. It will need a lot of water particularly when flowering and will grow in well drained fertile rich humus soil.

Hydrangea Paniculata Vanille Fraise Half Standard Tree Form
 
Hydrangea Paniculata have conical shaped flowers which bloom on new wood. In contrast to their better know cousins Hydrangea Macrophylla (or mop heads), Paniculatas are taller and have a more erect growth habit. In addition, they can be clipped at any time except immediately before they bloom. This makes them ideal for growing in an elegant topiary style hydrangea tree form (also known as standard or half standard). 

These Hydrangea Paniculata Vanille Fraise specimens have been trained as a half standard tree form and have a nice long trunk height of about 80 cm. The lovely green foliage on top will turn into a mass of creamy white showy flowers that, as the summer progresses, will be irresistibly tinged with pink and eventually turn to deep red in autumn. Hydrangea Paniculata Vanille Fraise tree form allows a shape that concentrates the blooms and the half standard height brings the lovely vista closer to eye level.
 
Hydrangea Paniculata Vanille Fraise is a beautiful Hydrangea with a long flowering period. The blooms are large conical shaped creamy white flowers that take on a gorgeous pink hue as the season advances. In autumn, the flowers become a rich red. 
 
Unlike Hydrangea Macrophylla, Hydrangea Paniculata may be grown in a sunny position provided they get enough water. However, ideally they do prefer some shade from the afternoon sun.
 
These hydrangea tree form Vanille Fraise are beautiful ornamental trees that look great in pairs – framing an entrance or brightening up a patio or roof terrace. Their slim shape means that they won’t take up a lot of horizontal space. 
 
We also have Hydrangea Paniculata Vanille Fraise available as a shrub form

Prunus Laurocerasus Etna

BUY 10X OR MORE PLANTS & TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR GREAT ROOT BALL OFFERS FOR HEDGING WHILE THE SEASON LASTS!

In our opinion Prunus Laurocerasus Etna is one of the most ornamental Laurels on the market. Its attractive shiny leaves emerge as a vibrant orangey red colour at the beginning of the Spring season (hence the evocative name Etna). It's new growth certainly bears the colouring of the firey, glowing lava from the Sicilian volcano. Prunus Laurocerasus Etna flowers are profuse, white and scented which attracts pollinators into the garden.

The Prunus Laurocerasus Etna variety is a more compact version of some of the usual varieties of Laurel (such as Prunus Laurocerasus). It therefore does not grow quite as quickly nor quite as tall as the latter. 
Etna matures to an eventual height of around 3-4 metres high. Laurel Etna is therefore a perfect choice for a small garden or where you need a well behaved hedge with an ornamental touch that will not require too much maintenance.

Prunus Laurel Etna is fully hardy and thrives on most soil types, coping well with shady conditions as well as full sun.

Portuguese Laurel or Prunus Lusitanica is a fully hardy evergreen shrub which is highly adaptable and easily clipped into shapes making it a good choice for topiary designs.

Semiarundinaria Fastuosa - Narihira Bamboo (AGM)

Semiarundinaria Fastuosa (commonly known as Narihira Bamboo) is a graceful elegant bamboo, native to Japan that grows up to 6 metres tall. Unlike other tall growing Bamboos, Semiarundinaria Fastuosa does not run and it makes an ideal screening bamboo for especially tight spaces as while tall, horizontally (or in terms of width) it won’t take up a lot of space.

Relatively new to Western Europe, Semiarundinaria Fastuosa is already proving extremely popular in the UK among those looking for a tall evergreen screen, particularly for a narrow space.

The thick green and straight canes of the Narihira Bamboo later mature to a mauve red in the autumn. It is also tolerant of shade. This is a slow to propagate variety of Bamboo and as such, it can be in short supply. At Paramount Plants, we have this extremely useful Semiarundinaria Fastuosa Bamboo in stock and in quantities. We are only one of a few nurseries in Europe who actually have decent 4+ metre tall specimens.

Semiarundinaria Fastuosa likes both full sun and shade.

Taxus Baccata Pompons (Niwaki Garden Bonsai Tree)

This mature and established Pom Pom Yew (Taxus Baccata) is a work of art. A living sculpture that has taken many years (approx. 10 years) to establish and shape into its current, striking Japanese style form. These Taxus Baccata Pompons are what is known as Niwaki trees. In Japan, Niwaki is the art of nurturing a garden tree or shrub to grow in a certain way or to conform to a certain shape in order to best showcase the natural features of the plant. The majestic Taxus Baccata (Yew) has many characteristics which make it suited to this kind of Japanese topiary. It is slow growing, evergreen with handsome foliage, hardy and reacts very well to clipping and trimming.

Our Niwaki Pom Pom Yew Trees, while mature plants, are small in size - we refer to this as garden bonsai size. Now standing at circa 1.75 metres high, all the hard work has been done for you. To maintain and keep this wonderful living sculpture healthy and happy, with the minimal of maintenance, then simply plant directly into the ground. The soil needs to be well-draining and fertile. If you live with heavy clay, make sure to add lots of organic compost to the soil you dig out and back fill with this mixture. It is always a good idea with heavy soils to mulch once a year in order improve the soil naturally with the help of worms.

These garden bonsai Pom Pom style topiary trees planted in the garden, carefully positioned, will lend a stylish accent or focal point wherever you plant them, even in those awkward spots. Whatever style of garden you have (it does not have to be Japanese), the addition of a living sculpture or Niwaki Garden Bonsai Tree will enhance your planting and create interesting structure.
