  1. EMBOTHRIUM COCCINEUM

    An unusually large flowered form of the "Chilean Firebush" collected as seed on the banks of Lago Cucao, Chiloe Island, during our 1994 Chile Expedition (RB94051). As this seed has wild diversity you will find that the clusters of tubular flowers that appear in early summer vary from crimson to an unforgettable bright red. Many plants grown in the UK are cuttings from the same plant but this is new blood! ... Learn More

It is very fast-growing but very easy to keep in check by pruning, and the young foliage of this Eucalyptus is beloved of flower arrangers everywhere, so if you want to keep your specimen small feel free to pollard away! ...

  4. 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. Oh, and spindleberry wood is very hard, and historically was often used for making tool handles, including textile spindles! ... Learn More

  5. EUONYMUS EUROPAEUS

    This attractive deciduous shrub bears panicles of small yellow flowers followed by four-lobed red fruits which split open to reveal orange seeds, the narrowly ovate leaves turning yellow or red in autumn, making it a popular ornamental plant in gardens and parks in addition to its resistance to frost and wind. European spindle wood is very hard, and can be cut to a sharp point, and predictably was used in the past for making wool spindles. Its name is derived from the Greek, ‘eu’ or ‘good’, and ‘onama’, ‘name’. It is also said to have meant ‘lucky’ but to have been used ironically because it was an unwelcome plant. Or, even from 'Euonyme', the mother of the Furies and, thus, a reference to its poisonous nature. Or, who knows.......... ... Learn More

  6. EXOCHORDA MACRANTHA 'THE BRIDE'

    The pure white flowers of this early summer flowering shrub give rise to the name - The Bride - or the Pearl Bush, as the opening flower buds have an astonishing resemblance to strings of pearls wrapped around the branches. In April and May it can produce an unforgettable cascading waterfall of sweetly perfumed ivory-white flowers. ... Learn More

  7. FATSIA JAPONICA

    A tropical-looking, frost-hardy evergreen shrub with large, leathery, brightly-polished leaves. Panicles of white flowers appear late in the year and much later still, in March and April, come the large clusters of jet-back berries. ... Learn More

  8. FICUS BENGHALENSIS

    Measured by canopy coverage, the giant banyan trees of India are the largest trees in the world. These amazing trees produce propagating roots which grow downwards as aerial roots and once they reach the ground, they become woody trunks that can become indistinguishable from the main trunk. The leaves are large, leathery, glossy green and elliptical in shape, and the leaf bud is covered by two large scales which falls as the leaf develops, young leaves having an attractive reddish tinge. This tree is considered sacred in India and often shelters a small temple underneath, and indeed it is one of the most sheltering trees with a large and deep shade. In temperate climates it is grown as a houseplant or even as a bonsai. ... Learn More

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. FUCHSIA BACILLARIS

    This rare and delightful diminutive shrub has very many small, coral-red flowers with frilly reflexed petals, which open for almost every month of the year, and tiny delicate leaves, the stems being deep red on the young growth. Bunches of small, shiny, black, spherical berries are later produced. Originating as a natural hybrid from Mexico, it is evergreen in all but the hardest winters, when it is often cut back to the ground but always regenerates in the spring. Very few fertile seeds are ever produced. ... Learn More

  12. FUCHSIA BOLIVIANA

    An absolutely stunning, showy species, native to southern Peru, Bolivia and northern Argentina, producing exotic, hanging clusters of four inch 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

  13. FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA

    We collected this most beautiful and bone-hardy plant, which can flower just four months after sowing, on our Chilean Expedition of 1994. Scarlet and purple 'ballerina' flowers open throughout summer and autumn and into winter in mild places, making a gorgeous hedge. ... Learn More

  14. FUCHSIA PANICULATA

    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

  15. GAULTHERIA HISPIDA

    This lovely endemic (only grows in Tasmania) shrub opens its white flowers in May and June followed by showy pure white 'berries' throughout the autumn. It is snow & frost hardy in the UK, but prefers a cool spot in the garden. Native to Tasmanian temperate rainforest, it has attractive red foliage on young growth which have coarse reddish-brown hairs on the leaves as they mature. ... Learn More
