Trees-Deciduous - Just Arrived

The term ‘Deciduous” means “shedding or losing foliage at the end of the growing season”. This means that in autumn, the leaves of deciduous trees will start falling until the tree is bare, and it will remain so until new leaves start to emerge in the spring. 

There are many reasons for selecting a deciduous specimen as oposed to an evergreen. The primary one is that if the tree is planted in an area where you wish to have summer shade and winter sun, then the habit that a deciduous tree has of shedding its leaves is perfect. So if you want shade over your outdoor entertaining area to protect you from the harsh summer sun, but in that same area you want the warmth of the winter sun to penetrate, then you must choose a deciduous specimen.

The deeply divided foliage of this special Maple goes through several colour changes throughout the season. Starting with orange tones in spring, turning purple then green-bronze and finally bright orange and scarlet in the autumn. The branches are quite pendulous in habit. Deciduous.

Maples are happiest in a sheltered position with protection from the harsh afternoon sun. They like deep cool soil and will happily grow in the garden or a container. Nothing beats them for spring beauty and autumn colour.

A graceful weeping Maple with gently arching branches. The foliage is finely dissected and dark maroon purple. Looks stunning in a container but equally would make an outstanding feature in the garden. Happiest in morning sun or semi-shade with protection from strong winds. Deciduous.

This is a Maple I personally rate for its sheer grace and form. I have grown it for years in several gardens (always in a container) and it never fails to please.

We must like this tree because it's growing in our garden. Very aptly named as the foliage is delicately divided and 'lacy' and you guessed it, a ruby wine colour. The foliage has bronze tones as it matures. Forms a graceful round headed small tree. Lovely to sit under. Deciduous.

Picture of Liquidambar Festerii
CLICK TO ENLARGE

An Australian variety noted for its smoothness of bark and brilliant autumn tonings. A beautiful specimen tree that will provide a blaze of colour in autumn, 'Festerii' is certainly worth planting. The dense green summer foliage turns to tones of yellow orange and red before leaf fall. Nice pyramidal shape. Plant in deep fertile soil. Deciduous.

'Festerii' is a particularly handsome specimen tree that needs space to grow and develop. The large, lobed, lush foliage is a fresh green in summer before putting on a fantastic autumn display. The autumn leaves hold on the tree well into winter.
