What instant shade? We have a range of super advanced trees that are all grow up and ready to give your place some instant shade and a sense of maturity to your garden or courtyard. Choose from deciduous trees, evergreens, flowering and natives.
Deciduous means trees that lose their foliage in winter. The advantage of this is that they let in the winter sun. We have an excellent range of maples in store, including weeping, purple leafed, variegated box elders and coral stemmed. We also have some lovely crepe myrtles in a range of colours. These are great trees, flowering in late spring, looking green and lush in summer and developing rich autumn shades as the weather cools, finally revealing their stunning mottled trunks in winter. Other flowering deciduous trees in store include crabapples, pears, weeping mulberries and weeping cherries. Evergreen trees maintain their foliage year around, which makes them great for screening.
If you prefer year round foliage, almost all natives are evergreen, and include Lilly pillies (we have some great compact types), grafted gums (we stock a really great range of pink, cream, orange and red flowering ones), NSW Christmas bush, lemon myrtles (Backhousia citriodora) , bottlebrush, ivory curl trees, blueberry ash, and a plant sometime called the native magnolia - Tristaniopsis ‘Luscious’. If you want a tree yesterday, plant a wattle. Same goes for grevilleas, many of which will grow 3-5m and screen any block of flats or 2 storey building that’s rocketing up by the time builders have said ‘tools down!’.
