  2. EUONYMUS CORNUTUS QUINQUECORNUTUS

    A very elegant, narrow-leaved, foliage plant that displays quite nondescript flowers in the summer, but come autumn produces a stunning display of bright red seeds that dangle from a bizarrely twisted, but most attractive and ornamental seed case.

  5. FICUS RACEMOSA

    This attractive tree usually has a distinctive crooked trunk and a spreading crown, but unlike the banyan, it has no aerial roots. The most distinctive aspect of this tree is the large number of short compact clusters of red, furry figs which amazingly grow directly out of the trunk of the tree. Native to Australasia, SE Asia and Indian sub-continent, it has long been used in Ayurveda, the traditional and ancient system of Indian medicine. It is also one of the sacred trees of Buddhists and Hindus. ... Learn More

  6. FICUS RELIGIOSA

    This lovely tree with pale grey bark produces figs which are primarily pollinated by fig wasps, which enter the flower through the hole at the base of the fruiting structure. It is sacred to Buddhists and Hindus as the Buddha himself was thought to have sat under one when he received enlightenment (bodhi). The oldest plant in the world of known planting date is the bo tree called Sri Maha Bodhi planted at the temple at Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka, in 288 BC. It is native to India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, south-west China and Indochina and Sadhus (Hindu ascetics) still meditate beneath sacred fig trees, and Hindus do circumambulation, or meditative pacing around the sacred fig tree as a mark of worship. Today it is revered as a symbol for prosperity, happiness, good fortune and long life. ... Learn More

  8. FUCHSIA ARBORESCENS

    A spectacular plant from the highlands of Central America, this rather un-Fuchsia-like shrub with glossy-green leaves, bears on red stems many beautiful, large panicles of bright pink flowers all through the summer and autumn. It was even reported to have flowered continually for 13 months through a particularly mild winter in Cornwall. It can survive a few degrees of frost but would benefit from some protection over the winter. ... Learn More

  9. FUCHSIA BOLIVIANA

    An absolutely stunning, showy species, native to southern Peru, Bolivia and northern Argentina, producing exotic, hanging clusters of 10 centimetre flowers in a stunning combination of pure white and fluorescent red. The long trumpet-shaped blooms open progressively down the cluster for several months, followed, quite incredibly, by tasty green fruits! This is an extremely valuable plant that can either be grown in a large pot or be centre-stage in the garden. Freshly picked seeds are very rarely offered for sale. ... Learn More

  10. FUCHSIA BOLIVIANA 'WHITE'

    We are offering the even rarer form of this elusive flower which displays incredible bi-coloured flowers with an ivory white tube and fluorescent scarlet petals.

This hard-to-find variety from the Andes mountains, which in the right climate can become an impressive shrub, sends down super-long clusters of trumpet-shaped blooms which open progressively down the cluster over several months. Hardy to about -4 °C for short periods, it is best in a sheltered spot or a large pot indoors. ... Learn More
