This very beautiful Acer has been bestowed the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society, a sure sign that it will perform well in most gardens

Why buy these Acers?   If you need a more mature Acer Tree these have a wide spreading habit with larger foliage.  Very interesting red flower display in Spring followed by dark green foliage and vibrant claret red in autumn.   A new Acer this year and a great addition to our collection of Japanese Acers.

Acer Palmatum Dissectum

Acer Palmatum Dissectum is a low growing dissectum variety of Acer with lacey fine leaves.  Fully hardy, these trees tolerate very harsh cold winters.  They do not like to dry out and can do so especially in pots, so extra care must be taken if you keep these trees containerised to make sure they are properly watered. Mulch is recommended to increase the moisture around the plant.  Sheltered shadier areas are recommended and they will grow well in a neutral to acid soil.

Other dissectum varieties available include Acer Palmatum Dissectum Garnet and Acer Palmatum Dissectum Ornatum.

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

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).

Photinia Red Robin Shrub

Photinia Red Robin is a popular evergreen shrub and is also known as Photinia Christmas Berry - latin name Photinia Fraseri
This upright, ever green shrub is frost hardy, very easy to grow and will thrive in most locations. Photinia Red Robin has wonderful year round interest and works very well as an evergreen hedging plant with a maximum height of 4 metres and a spread of 2 metres. 
Red Robin's attractive young leaves are bright red in colour gradually turning green as the leaves age - so the shrub has a wonderful range of leaf colours throughout the growing season, usually May - June. It also forms small white flowers and fruits in August.
If used as for evergreen hedging and pruned regularly - it will keep the new growth coming and encourage the red coloured leaves for which this shrub is renowned.
As it is easy to shape, Photinia is also a popular choice of shrub for use in topiary - Red Robin Half Standard or Photinia Red Robin Full Standard for a screening tree.
Photinia Red Robin is one of Paramount's most popular shrubs. We have a wide range of suitable plants for evergreen screening at the nursery in North London.
