The perfect choice for Autumn colour

By May 8, 2015 Media No Comments
The weather may be dreary, but the farm is looking beautiful this month with spectacular Autumn foliage from some of our deciduous trees. Today we’re highlighting three of our favourites:
This Japanese maple is a perfect choice for courtyards and smaller landscapes looking for a splash of texture and colour. With delicately razored leaves, the Osakazuki is showing off a stunning shade of red.

Acer p ‘Autumn Blaze’
This variety loves space to grow big and beautiful and spread its broad leaves out proudly. Perfect for large landscapes, parks and as avenue trees, Autumn Blaze lives up to its name with gorgeous intense colour, starting the season with a pinkish coral hue.

Cercis c. ‘Forest Pansy’
Looking for something a little different? Forest Pansy is a spectacular choice. Broad heart-shaped leaves in plum and burgundy hues decorate this small elegant tree, fading to a spectacular red-yellow in Autumn. Ideal for small areas and making a wonderful statement when planted alone or with lower shrubs or plants.
