Our topiary Cupressus Arizonica Spirals work particularly well with the natural conical / pyramid shaped growth habit of ‘blue ice'. Added interest from the distinctive reddish bark that becomes more pronounced as it matures.

Cupressus Arizonica Glauca Blue Ice has ‘glaucous’ aromatic needles (a reference to their silver grey colour).

Cupressus Leylandii trees are often referred to as simply Leylandii or Leyland Cypress. 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.

Leyland Cypress is also available in a golden colour, either as  Cupressus Leyland Goldrider and / or  the ever popular Leylandii Castlewellan Gold. For more information, view our entire collection of Conifers .

Cupressus Leylandii trees are excellent screening trees if correctly maintained. Leylandii should be trimmed back twice or three times each year to keep their shape. Leyland Cypress Hedging should not be cut back too hard beyond the green foliage as they do not re-shoot from wood. Good Leyland Cypress Hedging  needs 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).

Leylandii Castlewellan Gold – a fast growing tree, ideal for hedging

Our premium quality Leylandii Castlewellan Gold Hedging trees are circa 6 Feet tall and are ideal for evergreen screening and most general hedging requirements. Castlewellan Gold is fast growing yet can be kept trimmed to whatever height and/or shape you require.

For the ideal hedge, plant Castlewellan Gold trees in any well drained soil, fertile soil. It is best to plant the trees approximately 75 cm apart. Although Castlewellan Gold can reach an ultimate Height of up to 12 metres, with regular trimming, a Castlewellan Gold Leylandii hedge can be kept to virtually any height or shape.
Tip: It’s best to trim in summer cutting back only the young shoots.

Carpinus Betulus
Carpinus Betulus or Common Hornbeam is an indigenous tree species in Britain and is one of the finest of our native hedging plants. Fast and densely growing Carlinus Betulus is particularly suited to shaping, trimming and creating espaliers or clear stem trees. Hornbeam hedges, although considered similar and often compared to Beech, are in our opinion  infinitely superior plants for hedging. Hornbeams  have beautiful vibrant green foliage in Spring and although they are deciduous, with a summer trim the leaves will change to a beautiful tawny yellow colour in autumn and in all but the harshest winters will remain on the stems creating a lovely golden coloured hedge throughout the winter months.
Historically this was one of the UK's most treasured trees - creating incredibly tough wood, hornbeam was prized for many, many uses including creating tools, for fuel and for making excellent charcoal.
Hornbeam will grow in most well drained, moist soils and will happily grow in partial shade, although will be most luscious and fast growing in full sun.

Carpinus Betulus commonly known as the Hornbeam tree is native to Britain. It is similar to green Beech and is often used for hedging and for pleaching. These pleached hornbeam trees have been trained on a tall frame to be used as a "hedge" above the fence or wall line and they are known as Pleached Hornbeams.

Hornbeams are most suited to being pleached. Pleaching is the ancient art of training the young hornbeams trees to be grown on stilted stems or tall clear trunks with the foliage kept in a squared shape on top, above head height. Once shaped into a nice pleached form, these hornbeams are not difficult to maintain. 

Pleaching originated in the 17th century. Today pleached hornbeams are used to great effect in contemporary gardens to provide height and elegance while taking up minimal ground space. Pleached Hornbeams are ideal for creating garden rooms, providing a green screen above head height, delineating pathways or guiding the eye towards a particular focal point or view. 

Hornbeam is a dense, hardy hedging plant which produces attractive catkins in springtime. Although deciduous, Hornbeam leaves will generally keep their form over the harshest winter months turning a lovely copper colour. Then producing dark/mid-green dense bushy foliage in the Summer months.  With a slow to medium growth rate, Hornbeams are easy to maintain, needing only an occasional trim to keep their shape.

Hornbeams prefer full sun or partial shade and are hardy.

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 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.

Ligustrum Ovalifolium (Privet Hedging)

Ligustrum Ovalifolium is more commonly known as privet (or hedging privet and also oval-leaved privet). Privet is Britain’s best-loved and perhaps most popular hedging plant, explaining why it is often referred to as hedging privet. 
 
Ligustrum Ovalifolium is fast growing with a very dense habit. Privet hedging plants will rapidly form an impenetrable hedge, ideal for screening and privacy. Privet is a tough and hardy shrub originating from Japan. It is semi-evergreen but throughout most UK winters it does retain its foliage unless the weather is very severe. Its dense branches provide safe and secure nesting for small birds. 
 
Privet has attractive lush green foliage with flashes of greenish-yellow from the leaf underside. The leaves, as the name Ovalifolium suggests, are oval shaped. 
 
You can keep a Ligustrum Ovalifolium hedge at any height you like. From a low decorative privet hedge of 3 to 4 feet, right up to 15 feet or more if required. Privet is extremely tolerant of clipping and shaping and can be clipped several times per year. 
 
Some gardeners prefer a more informal hedge than the strict geometric lines of a formal clipped hedge. Ligustrum Ovalifolium works just as well when grown more informally. Clipped less often, it will produce panicles of tiny, white flowers in summer and black berries in autumn, thus becoming a real wild-life magnet in your garden as well as providing solid screening and privacy. 
 
Privet Hedging Plants will benefit from a bit of feeding for the first few years until they get established.

Ligustrum Ovalifolium Aureum
 
Ligustrum Ovalifolium Aureum (also named Golden Privet) is the golden, variegated variety of the much loved green leaved Ligustrum Ovalifolium (Hedging Privet). Golden Privet is a semi evergreen shrub that makes a beautiful dense hedge. The leaves are small, yellow and oval-shaped with a green margin in the centre. In summer, Ligustrum Ovalifolium Aureum produces small white scented flowers, followed by black fruits in late summer or autumn. 
 
Ligustrum Ovalifolium Aureum can be planted in full sun or partial shade. This is useful to know, particularly for those difficult to fill shady spots. Golden Privet will grow in any moist, well-drained, fertile soil. This is a resilient and hardy shrub with lots of versatility. Stand-alone and unclipped as an informal shrub, its golden foliage is most attractive and its summer flowers and autumn fruits will attract pollinators and birds aplenty. Its merits as a formal hedge are well known, particularly here in the UK where it is very popular. 
 
Ligustrum Ovalifolium Aureum can reach a maximum height of 3 to 5 metres with a maximum spread 3 to 4 metres. However, like its green cousin Privet, Golden Privet is happy to be clipped several times per year and can be kept to whatever size and width of hedge you require.
 
Ligustrum Ovalifolium Aureum has achieved the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Of all the Bamboos - Phyllostachys Aurea or Golden Bamboo performs as one of the best large, clump forming variety of bushy Bamboo for our climate here in the UK, where it is fully hardy.

This densely bushy bamboo plant has lemon yellow canes which become more of an orange colour when exposed to sunlight.
Phyllostachys Aureosulcata prefers full sun but can be grown in partial shade and for this reason it's a useful plant for screening off shaded areas or for interest in the darker recesses of the garden.

Bamboo Root Barrier
Phyllostachys varieties of bamboo are clump forming and therefore usually non-invasive as the new shoots pop up within their own clump.  However after years the clump will expand and will start to spread.  If you want to control, direct and enhance the growth you can bury a root barrier (a thick membrane) around 70cm depth into the ground surrounding the bamboo planted area.  Membrane available in 5m, 10m and 20m lengths all at 70cm depths.

Cupressus Leylandii these trees have been trained to grow as a pleached tree to cover over the fence panel. 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 popularLeylandii 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).

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.

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 Fastigiata is also know as Irish Yew. A narrowly columnar evergreen conifer with narrow dark green leaves, Taxus Baccata Fastigiata is often used for hedging purposes as it makes a very neat, lovely dense coloured hedging. However, its columnar shape makes it a good choice as a specimen tree when you need a punctuating element in the garden. Irish Yew grows neatly and even without trimming will produce a lovely column shape.

Taxus Baccata Fastigiata also produces cones and the female form of the plant has very attractive red berries in the Autumn - care should be taken when positioning as although birds can eat these berries they are toxic to humans.

Relatively slow growing, Taxus Baccata Fastigiata will reach a maximum height of circa 10 metres. Max Spread 6m.
