FLOWERING TREES

Cornus 'Eddies White Wonder'

An extremely popular ‘Dogwood’ and deservedly so. A reliable performer in most climates. Handles the heat well compared to others in the family. Large showy white bracts appear in spring followed by fresh green summer foliage that turns scarlet and orange in autumn prior to leaf fall.

Evergreen Ash

(Fraxinus griffithii)

A small but quick growing evergreen tree originating in South East Asia producing dark green glossy leaves and grey bark with showy panicles of white flowers during spring. A thick growth habit makes this tree well suited for planting as a feature tree in a large garden. It is also excellent as a tall informal hedge around fence lines to screen for privacy.
