Neolitsea sericea - from Korea

A Far Eastern member of the laurel family, making a medium to large evergreen shrub. In this form the oval foliage expands particularly pinky-red in spring, covered in silken, golden shining hairs, before becoming green, when the glaucous underside becomes apparent. The deeply impressed veins are a give-away as to its family. Cream flowers in autumn.

Large heads of deep-pink, periwinkle flowers from June to October, this will make a medium sized, rounded evergreen shrub for a sheltered site in full sun.

Nothofagus betuloides (new)

The most southerly of the Chilean evergreen species, this forms a more compact, generally medium sized tree than the larger N. dombeyi or N. nitida, growing in columnar fashion when young and the leaves with a dentate rather than serrate margin. Particularly rare in the UK, this is a handsome thing. Not for chalk soils.

Nyssa sylvatica 'Wisley Bonfire'

Nyssa sylvatica 'Wisley Bonfire'

This is the superb, recently named clone of the American 'Tupelo' that has grown and been admired at Wisley gardens for many years. Strangely, often pictured in RHS publications as a normal Tupelo, it is very distinct from all others I have seen. Its crown form is very uniform, like that of a Japanese Pagoda, with superb autumn colour. Lime free soil.
