Colour Leaf Trees
With their own distinctiveness, colour leaf trees look attractive in any setting. An alternative to other varieties, with individual colouring giving profound autumn colour which brightens up any garden.
Variegated sycamore (Acer Pseud Leopoldii)
A deciduous, small spreading tree. The variegated sycamore has beautifully marked leaves which turn from a yellowy pink to a green splashed with yellow and white later on. Best grown in full sunlight.
Purple Leaved Sycamore (Acer pseudo. Spaethii)
One of the fastest growing sycamores. Bearing distinct two tone colour leaves, this tree has purple leaves with a green underneath. The purple leaved sycamore provides good autumn colour with leaves turning buttermilk to yellow/orange during the autumn.
Claret Ash (Fraxinus exc. Raywood)
Growing to about 2 metres, the claret ash has glossy green foliage turning claret to deep purple in autumn. This narrow tree broadens with age, bearing leaflets narrowly arranged in a circular fan shape covering the branches.
Purple Leaved Plum/Cherry (Prunus Trailblazer)
A very popular variety with large, dark red foliage turning to a deep purple. Blossoming with white flowers between March and April, the purple leaved plum grows and spreads between 15 to 30 feet, providing a rounded or vase shaped tree. An ideal focal point in any garden.
Silver Leaved Lime (Tilia Tomentosa)
A handsome, stately tree with erect branches bearing white-felted shoots. Leaves are sharply toothed, dark green on top with a silvery white colour beneath. Particularly attractive when ruffled by a breeze.
