Mango - Alphonso

$59.00

Yellow skinned, medium size, only slight fibre, excellent quality. Sets well in subtropics. It is a favourite of India where it is the most desired of all the mangoes. So although not a huge mango the quality and taste is what makes it famous.

Jacaranda - White Grafted

$49.00 ($49.00-$99.00 choose a size)

A beautiful white flowering form of jacaranda. A spectacular choice for a street tree or large shade tree. Long lived trees that can grow to be 200 years old. Flowers appear in late spring and early summer. Grafting ensures flower will be pure white.The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Poinciana

$18.75 ($18.75-$59.00 choose a size)

Large striking tree with vibrant red flowers in Summer. Regarded as on of the best shade trees in the subtropics. Broad spreading quick growing tree. Protect from frost when young.

Golden Shower

$29.00 ($24.00-$29.00 choose a size)

This striking tree exhibits a magnificent display of pendulous racemes of clear yellow blossoms. Fern-like leaves and the tree produces long seed-pods after flowering. Needs very well drained soil, regular moisture and full sunlight.

Cape Chestnut

$29.00 ($19.75-$39.00 choose a size)

A beautiful and delicate tree when in full bloom. The colour of flowers vary from white to rosy pink and flowering occurs shortly after the growth of new foliage has stopped after a brief deciduous period.

Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$49.00 choose a size)

Highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The beautiful red new growth is highly distinctive. The spice itself is the inner bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the outer bark, then peel the inner bark, leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. They are distinctive in the many layered quill they produce that, when crushed, will shard rather than snap. Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic, much kinder to the palate than other spices. It imparts a distinctively sweet flavour when used. The leaves themselves are higher in clove oil than cinnamaldehyde, the active component of the sweet aromatic scent of cinnamon. Weed Warning: Can be invasive in tropical areas

Indian Mast Tree

I've loved this tree ever since seeing it in SE Asia. Now growing one in quite swampy conditions. It's slow but doing well.

Indian Mast Tree

I planted small plants 5 years ago, they have weathered both drought , 44C and a flood, and some are almost 2 storeys tall!!! Beautiful tall screen for narrow spaces. Beware if water nearby, they will grow bent out over it and fruit earlier!

Indian Mast Tree

Further to my comment. The Mast Tree has a soft lush mid green leaves. Every leaf is different and goes from pale green to a darker green. If you plant these trees closer together they reasonably resemble a vertical garden. A great architectural plant.

Indian Mast Tree

Saw these growing in Singapore on my last visit. Very lush and tropical looking. Ideal alternative to a Cypress Pencil Pine where you want to block the neighbours view or cut down noise. Nice feature Tree.
