Plant of the Week: Trees
Every tree has its moment of glory: brilliant scarlet autumn colours on Japanese maples, the glowing coppery bark of Tibetan cherries, or clusters of jewel-like berries on rowans.
But the real head-turners are trees with spectacular flowers. Plant Japanese cherries like 'Shirotae' for huge froths of blossom to outshine all others in the spring garden, with the possible exception of flowering magnolias, from waist-high 'Leonard Messel' to tall, stately M. grandiflora. The small dark flowers of the handkerchief tree (Davidia involucrata) are surrounded by huge, droopy white bracts in May, and evergreen Eucryphia x nymansensis 'Nymansay' bursts into papery cupped white flowers soon afterwards.
