Ornamental trees and shrubs are the most important living elements in your home landscape. They beautify your house and garden whilst adding other features such as privacy, act as noise and dust filters, and provide a background of colour. From sprawling ground covers to the most majestic of large trees the following list offers plants to suit all purposes in the home garden.

Crepe Myrtle - Tuscarora

$19.90 ($19.90-$29.00 choose a size)

This small to medium sized tree has dark green foliage that turns reddish-orange in autumn. New growth is red tinged. The bark is attractive and the beautiful dark pink flowers appear in late summer to early autumn. Suitable as a feature tree in gardens and parks. An excellent screening or street tree. Prefers an open sunny position with well drained soil. This cultivar has been bred to resist powdery mildew.

Abelia

$9.90

These beautiful ornamental shrubs provide a blaze of vibrant floral color throughout summer, and autumn color in cooler climates. Can be used to great effect when planted as a low informal hedge, and look equally impressive when planted singly. Most Abelia species have a densely bushy habit, often with slightly arching branches and small glossy leaves that taper to a fine point. The young foliage has bronze to golden tints that in some cultivars persist to maturity. From late summer, small, full-shaped to tubular, white to pink flowers smother the bushes. Some species have persistent reddish sepals that provide an additional ornamental feature after the flowers have faded.Although hardiness varies considerably, most abelias are not suitable in areas with severe winters. Plant in a position in sun or part-shade with moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Pruning should be undertaken to keep the plant looking tidy whilst maintaining its natural arching habit. Trim to shape in late winter or spring, removing the cane ends and also some of the basal shoots in order to allow room for new growth
