We are very lucky in Tasmania to have a true autumn, this gives us the opportunity to have some spectacular deciduous trees that put on an amazing display every year.
Some favourites are:
Acer palmatum – Japanese maple
A great small tree for any garden, plant them in a sheltered spot and they will reward you with a stunning autumn display of reds and yellows.
Nyssa sylvatica – Tupelo
The attractive form and ornamental bark on this large tree make it a feature year round in the garden. Its autumn foliage transitions through yellows to deep burgundy.
Acer October glory – Canadian Maple
With a uniform habit and excellent late autumn colour the October glory is a great choice for parks, large gardens and street scapes.
Cercidiphyllum japonicum – Katsura Tree
In autumn the heart shaped leaves of the Katsura tree take on autumnal hues of gold, orange and red. A fantastic medium tree for most garden situations.
Pistacia chinensis – Chinese Pistachio
A relatively slow growing feature tree that has fantastic glowing autumn colours. The pistachio can handle a range of conditions provided there is adequate drainage.
We have a huge range of deciduous trees in stock, well worth a visit to the nursery to see the colours for yourself.
