About our Cherry Laurels
The botanical name for Cherry Laurel is Prunus Laurocerasus. It is well known as a fabulous plant for hedging and screening purposes. It's fast growth rate and densely populated foliage ensures that if you need year round privacy screening, then this is the hedging plant of choice.

These huge, mature specimens are designed to have instant impact. Even though these are very large specimens, we're able to offer our Laurels at a great price due to their rootballed status. Grown in the ground until ready for planting, these trees are then lifted and the roots are wrapped in hessian. To plant, you just pop then in the ground, complete with the protective hessian wrap, which disintegrates naturally. The avoidance of constant re-potting creates a cost saving which we are very happy to pass on to our customers. 

Cherry Laurel is very accommodating in that it will grow happily in either full sun or partial shade - one of the few hedging plants that will grow in shade. Prunus Laurocerasus produces small, fragrant white flowers on upright spikes which bloom in springtime, followed by red fruits that will eventually ripening to black. The flowers, fruits and density of the foliage make this a good choice for hedging with wildlife in mind.

Crataegus Monogyna is known as the Common Hawthorn and is a common sight along the hedgerows in the UK. This beautiful tree has been part of the British landscape for millennia.
The May Tree's blanket of white blossom heralds the beginning of summer. In fact one of the best known names for this tree is the May Flower and the ship that set sail from the UK to America - The Mayflower was named after the Hawthorn tree.
The tree is robust and dense and is absolutley covered in white blooms in May - June, creating a wonderful sight in any garden as a specimen tree. The flowers are circa 10mm across with five pure white petals and numerous pinky red stamens. The flowers attract pollinators and the dense foliage is the perfect safe place for nesting birds. In Autumn the flowers are followed by haws - these are bright red in colour and similar to berries or hips - they are a very important source of food for many birds and are particularly loved by waxwings and thrushes. Foliage in Autumn turns a beautiful golden yellow contrasting with the bright red haws.
Growing Tip - Common Hawthorn is hardy and will grow on just about any soil, including chalky or clay soil. It is tolerant in exposed sites including the coast. 
Crataegus Monogyna is a natural hedging plant and is a must in mixed hedgerows or mixed ornamental hedges. With its dense habit and thorny branches this is a go-to hedging plant for resisting intruders, plant this attractive hedge around your property boundary for extra security.

Cupressus Leylandii trees are often referred to as simply Leylandii or Leyland Cypress.The full botanical name is Cupressus x Leylandii and they are acknowledged as one of the fastest growing evergreen conifers here in the UK. Leylandii are mainly used for hedging and evergreen screening yet all Cupressus trees make excellent roosting places and are often used as nest sites by birds such as greenfinches, robins, dunnocks and wrens. A Cupressus Leylandii hedge provides year round shelter for a wide range of wildlife.
The continuing popularity of Cupressus Leylandii for hedging here in the UK is hardly surprising if you look at this plant’s characteristics. As well as being evergreen, a prerequisite of any year round screening, Leylandii are very fast growing, expect a growth rate of at least 3 feet per year. Leyland Cypress will grow and perform well in virtually any soil but do need to be maintained.
Cypress Leylandii new growth lends itself very well to trimming and a Leylandii hedge maintains its shape well if trimmed regularly, ideally 2 to 3 times per year. Leyland Cypress hedging should not be cut back too hard beyond the green foliage, as they do not shoot from old wood. Best practise is to give consistently regular trims rather than letting them grow and cutting back hard. If you follow this rule you will be rewarded with a neat dense hedge that will provide instant privacy.
If you prefer a more moderate growth and a Cypress tree that easily re-grows from a hard prune, we recommend Thuja Plicata Martin – it looks very similar to Leylandii but is more forgiving when cut back hard.
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 .
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).

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.

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.

Ilex Crenata Hedge

This variety is Ilex Crenata Maxima, a new variety of Japanese Holly. It is an excellent addition to the range of Ilex Crenata plants such as Convexa which are already available on the market. It is very well suited for growing an Ilex Crenata Hedge. 
 
Alternative to Box Hedge
In the UK, Ilex Crenata is perhaps most widely known as a plant for topiary. Due to its dense growing habit, it is also a good plant to use for hedging. In particular, an Ilex Crenata hedge is an effective alternative to Box Hedge.  As Boxwood (Buxus Sempervirens) continues to be very susceptible to the dreaded box blight, an Ilex Crenata hedge is in our opinion one of the best alternatives to box hedge. It is a hardier plant while having a similar appearance to Buxus.  
 
Japanese Holly
Ilex Crenata, more commonly known as Japanese Holly, is an evergreen shrub, very similar in appearance to Buxus (Box Hedging) and is typically used for hedging or beautiful dense topiary.
 
Ilex Crenata Maxima
The variety Ilex Crenata 'Maxima' is a compact grower with bright green and shiny evergreen leaves. The leaves are small, oval, glossy and dark green. The new foliage in contrast is a very pretty lighter green. Maxima is a Japanese holly that is well-branched. Its compact growth habit and any pruning help it to quickly develop into a compact plant. With its full and sleek shape, Ilex Crenata 'Maxima' is an excellent choice for tight hedges and in beds. 
 
These are all ideal characteristics for hedging plants and these particular plants have been grown specifically with hedging in mind. The plants are bushy in shape and are available in many sizes, the smallest from 30 cm to the largest to 1.75 metres tall. Our aim is to have a plant size to fit every budget. We are offering a substantially discounted price when you buy 10 or more plants.

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.

Fagus Sylvatica Atropunicea. Commonly known as Purple Beech
A magnificent tree the purple majestic can be seen in absolute contrast to the myriad of greens in the UK landscape. As a specimen tree it was often used by Capability Brown and has become a firm favourite for woodland style planting, due largely to its spectacular foliage colour. Plant this tree strategically to get the most WOW factor. As this is a large broad leaf tree it is not a suitable choice for small gardens but will thrive where it has room to grow and achieve its full potential. 
In contrast Fagus Sylvatica Atropunicea grown for hedging is easily managed by regular pruning this cultivar maintains its deep purple colour throughout the year, unlike the more common Copper Beech which can fade to green in the summer. Can be attractive when planted with alternate green hedging to create an ornamental hedge of purple and bright green - a Grisselinia is a good contrast for this.
A purely purple beech hedge is a thing of beauty and will be appreciated by nesting birds in the summer. For a super stunning design element use purple beech to create a mini maze or for screening off 'garden rooms' such as an outdoor seating area or for dividing flowers and a potager area. The possibilities are endless. 
 
Growing Tip: Good growing conditions for beech are well draining rich soils and in a sunny open position.

Yellow Groove Bamboo or Phyllostachys Aureosulcata is a bamboo native to China - it is extremely hardy, evergreen plant that is particularly useful for screening and hedging purposes.
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.
Paramount Plants has a good range of Bamboo plants for sale at the nursery in London, UK.
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).

Portuguese Laurel - botanical name Prunus Lusitanica, is a fabulous choice for evergreen screening. These quality plants have been grown as rootballs - grown in the ground to their current size and then lifted for sale. This is a very cost effective way to grow these hedging plants and we're pleased to pass on these savings to our customers.

Portuguese Laurel has beautiful glossy green leaves that are spearhead shaped with a lightly serrated edge. The new growth has a deep crimson red colour and overall these bushes are most attractive. Portuguese Laurel has hugely grown in popularity due to it's density of foliage and its relatively fast growth. These plants provide a fabulous evergreen screen and give instant privacy.

Prunus Lusitanica positively thrives on being cut and pruned, although, if you leave the pruning until after midsummer you'll be rewarded with a haze of flowers. These are creamy yellow in colour with stamens that give the blooms a lovely fuzzy appearance. The perfume is heady and gives a clue to it's close relative - the Hawthorn. The flowers of Prunus Lusitanica are followed by a mass of black berries which look pretty and are loved by birds.
 
Easily grown, Portugese Laurel ticks all the boxes for hedging, it will grow in almost any aspect. These are excellent quality plants and we have a good range of sizes, suitable for most situations, in particular for instant screening. 

Prunus Lusitanica or Portuguese Laurel has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit always a sign that it will perform really well in UK gardens.

Pleached Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer - Pleached Ornamental Pear Tree
 
Fruit trees such as ornamental pears and apples have long been used for purposes of pleaching. In particular Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer (Callery Pear or Ornamental Pear) naturally has an upright, densely branched growth habit, a most useful attribute in a pleached tree. It produces small white flowers in spring and its foliage has vibrant autumn colour. Add to this the fact that it is always early to leaf in the spring and late to drop its leaves in the autumn, more reasons why it is widely acknowledged as a good tree for pleaching.
 
Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer (Ornamental Pear) Tree has rich dark green foliage in summer. An abundant flowerer, Callery pear trees will produce masses of white blossom in springtime which attracts bees and other pollinators, usually before the leaves have fully emerged. In autumn, the foliage turns a fabulous red, gold and orange. Its fruits, which are small, hard and brown coloured, are enjoyed as an early winter feast by birds, once the fruits have been softened by the first frosts. 
 
Belonging to the Rosaceae family, deciduous Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer is native to China and among the hardiest of pear trees. Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer tolerates air pollution and is known for its resistance to disease, so this is a good tree to grow in urban areas. It is also salt resistant and more wind tolerant than other pear varieties and will therefore do well in coastal areas. You can plant in a full sun or partial shade position but it prefers full sun if possible.
 
A row of pleached trees can be used to great effect to create shaded avenues or driveways. Pleaching is also a way of growing trees in smaller, more confined urban spaces. Use them as a living screen for above the fence or an ornamental wall in the garden. Highly decorative, they will have the white blossom in early spring, green foliage in summer and lovely fiery red foliage in the autumn. Pleached trees are an excellent way of creating additional privacy over the top of a 2 metre tall fence. 
 
These pleached ornamental pear trees are 3 metres tall with a trunk or stem height of 1.8 metres and a frame of 1.2 metres high x 1 metre wide. We would recommend planting a row of these pleached ornamental pear trees at circa 1.5 metres apart.
Prune just once per year to maintain the shape.

These stunning clear stemmed trees are evergreen with very dense foliage giving great screening cover. These trees are perfect for screening out unsightly views or for above wall or fence screening to give more boundary privacy with neighbours.
As with all Cherry Laurels the foliage is bright green and very shiny - the leaves have an almost leathery quality. The young shoots are a vibrant green and they develop into a gorgeous dark green screen as the leaves mature. These trees are relatively fast growing but easy to keep in shape with a light trim.

Prunus Laurocerasus Etna

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.

It is accommodating and will grow in full sun or partial shade and is ver hardy.

Thuja Smaragd or White Cedar Smaragd. Supplied as Root Ball.

Thuja Occidentalis Smaragd is a most attractive variety of Thuja. Growing more slowly (width-wise) than other varieties of Thuja, Thuja Occidentalis Smaragd has an upright conical habit and produces erect sprays of charming bright green foliage even in winter. The foliage is aromatic.

Over recent years, Thuja conifers are becoming increasingly acknowledged as excellent hedging conifers that are well suited to our climate here in Britain and Ireland. They are evergreen, fast-growing, naturally conical shaped trees with small, fragrant leaves.

The variety Thuja Occidentalis Smaragd has many common names including White Cedar Smaragd or White Cedar Emerald. It can also be referred to as Thuja Occidentalis Emerald.  As the name suggests, its foliage has a beautiful, emerald hue (smaragd meaning emerald in German).

Thuja Smaragd trees have a dense growing habit and aromatic green foliage. The foliage lends itself very well to trimming, where required. Grown as a stand-alone specimen tree or pair of trees, Smaragd is a narrow, shapely and elegant conifer with its beautiful conical shape.

White Cedar Smaragd is an ideal conifer for hedging. If you are looking for instant impact in your garden or landscape, the more mature Thuja Smaragd trees standing at 2.75 metres tall are excellent value! 
 
There are many advantages to having a Thuja Occidentalis Emerald hedge. Smaragd is colour resistant in winter, meaning that it retains its colour during the winter months and is not susceptible to browning of the needles. 
 
Relatively little cutting & shaping is required. Thuja Smaragd is particularly dense and columnar. Its narrow stature means that unlike most other hedging plants, it needs relatively little pruning, even over many years. This is because Thuja Smaragd grows slowly width-wise. In height on the other hand, White Cedar Emerald has a normal growth rate. Perfect characteristics for hedging! 
 
Thuja Smaragd grows well in full sun on rich soil that drains well. Fully hardy. Max height in 20 years 3-4 metres. 

For many seasoned gardeners, Thuja 'Smaragd' is often considered the most beautiful and most recommendable of the Thuja varieties. But as it is slower growing, it tends to be more expensive than its related Thuja Occidentalis Brabant or Thuja Plicata Martin
 
We aim to have a size in stock for every budget. As these hedging plants are root balled, we are able to offer even better value.

Thuja Smaragd White Cedar Pencil Cypress

These beautiful Thuja Smaragd Pencil Cypress specimens have been clipped and trained into an Italian pencil cypress style tree. With their naturally upright, slender and conical growth habit, Thuja Smaragd White Cedar does closely resemble the classic Italian pencil Cypress except that Thuja Smaragd is much hardier than the Mediterranean native pencil cypress and therefore very well suited to the UK climate. These trees are ideal if you are looking to achieve that Mediterranean feel, even in very exposed areas. 
 
Evergreen and slow growing, Thuja Smaragd Pencil Cypress (Smaragd meaning Emerald in German) has beautiful glossy green foliage all year round. The foliage has a wonderful pineapple scent. 
 
Thuja Smaragd grows well in full sun on rich soil that drains well. Fully hardy, these slender pencil shaped trees will reach a maximum height over 20 years of 3 to 4 metres. 
 
Our pencil cypress style Thuja Smaragd trees are mature, already standing well over 2 metres tall (excluding the pot). They look particularly impressive when planted in pairs, framing a doorway, entrance or seating area for example. They work well in formal as well as more informal gardens. White Cedar Pencil Cypress can be grown in containers – and tall and slender as they are, will be an elegant addition to any patio or terrace.

Our quality specimens, are, as you can see from the pictures, very bushy from the bottom to the top of the plant and if you plant 2 trees per linear metre you will create an instant hedge. Very heavy growth makes these Thuya Occidentalis plants extremely good value for money. Thuya Occidentalis Brabant stands up to regular clipping much better than Leylandii - they renew and keep their nice green growth and release a very pleasant pineapple fragrance as the leaves are cut.

Thuja Plicata Martin is also known as the Western Red Cedar.  Thuja is part of the cypress family and is known as a fast growing conifer tree.
Thuya Plicata 'Martin' is a particular variety of Thuja which is a mid-size variety that will reach  6-7 metres in height at maturity. This variety retains a slender shape with a diameter of not more than 0.8-1 metre wide. This aspect is particularly useful for hedging purposes where lateral space is usually limited.
The evergreen foliage of Thuja Plicata Martin is a dense, mid green in colour, which becomes tinged with an attractive bronze during the winter months. 
Thuja Plicata Martin is a very popular choice for privacy screening hedging, partly due to its ability to renew itself after trimming or cutting back. Other varieties of fast growing hedging, for example Cupressus Leylandii, can develop dead foliage at their centre (especially when they are not regularly trimmed) which won’t renew itself easily. Thuja Plicata conversely, will regrow happily after being cut back and still remain a lovely verdant green hedge.
Thuja Plicata or Western Red Cedar (named for its red bark) is native to Pacific North America and grows well in the UK climate - easy to grow and with low maintenance. A trim at the beginning of the Spring to keep in shape is usually enough to last the year. If necessary, give another trim in autumn (don't leave it too late in the year for the last cut). 
Although a fast growing hedge it doesn't need as much managing as Leylandii. Thuja Plicata Martin has unusually fragrant foliage, when you brush past the trees or when you trim the leaves, there is a lovely scent of pineapple from the bright green foliage.  A very attractive and practical hedge plant 'Martin' is also an impressive specimen tree for small to medium sized gardens.
Another excellent variety of Thuja (sometimes spelled Thuya) that is especially useful for hedging, is Thuja Occidentalis Brabant.

Yew or Taxus Baccata is the perfect choice for a neat trimmed hedge.   A coniferous bushy plant which grows well in most soil conditions.  

With the fashionable focus on contemporary minimalism and formal designs, taxus baccata is the go-to plant for many garden designers.

Yew (Taxus Baccata)  is luscious and dense. Its dark evergreen leaves providing colour and texture throughout the winter months. Native Yew is a wildlife-friendly hedging and is popular with birds for its berries and protective cover.  It is slow growing so minimal maintenance is required.  Consider buying larger plants (as larges as your budget allows) to avoid waiting too long for the hedge to establish. During the winter months Taxus hedging is available as rootballed plants here at Paramount. 

Taxus is also available as very large plants and it lends itself very well to being clipped as topiary - Taxus Spirals.  See also other varieties of taxus available at Paramount Plants.  The attractive Yew Hedge featured in the image below (the yew is the tallest part of this hedge) shows the hedge has been tiered to incorporate a hedge of Yew, Holly and then underplanted with an edging of Pines.
