A tall, (20m or more) slender deciduous tree of graceful habit with slightly drooping branches. Needs deep, well-drained soil and regular watering in summer. I’ve found that these trees can burn their foliage in very hot weather. While they enjoy full sun in cooler climates, in areas of hot summers, midday shade is advised.

A deciduous conifer native to the Americas, that grows on the edges of rivers and swamps. Weeping habit and very soft, pale green leaves gives it a mystical appearance. MUST never be allowed to dry out. Makes an excellent Bonsai (but requires careful attention to watering).
This image is from the Everglades National Park in Florida, where they are indigenous trees.

A beautiful alternative to a pine for a Christmas or Yule tree, this Himalayan favourite is reasonably fast growing after the first couple of years in the ground. Eventually growing to a tall and stately tree up to 30m, it can be kept smaller by restraining it within a large container and pruning. Great for bonsai.
Medium - $20 in 250mm pots
A beautiful dwarf variant of the Himalayan Cedar, with a reasonably upright trunk but weeping, cascading branches, highlighted with golden needles. Slower growing than the species, it will none-the-less eventually grow to several metres tall.

A beautiful Cedar native to the Atlas mountains in Morocco. Widely grown in Australia as a specimen tree in botanic gardens and historic mansions, even used as a street tree in cool areas. Faster growing than the Spruces, it makes a wonderful living Christmas or Yule tree.

Possibly the toughest and easiest to grow of the Spruce species, the Norway Spruce has a lovely pyramidal shape and dense foliage, which makes it resemble the quintessential Christmas tree. Faster growing than the Blue or White Spruces, it likes free draining but moist rich soils and full sun or part shade. The scent of the needles is delightful.

A lovely creeping ground cover with typical Juniper scale foliage in a rick blue-green colour. Very low growing, it usually only gets up to 20cm high but will spread out up to 2m.

World's largest tree species (in terms of overall biomass and girth - the tallest currently appears to be a toss-up between Eucalyptus regnans, the mighty Mountain Ash, and Pseudotsuga mensiesii, the Douglas Fir) Sequoias are stunning trees that can cope with a wide variety of harsh conditions. Once in the ground they can sometimes grow quite quickly and of course, in a century they will be a massive legacy. However, they can be kept small by restraining them in a large pot and pruning. They are excellent Bonsai specimens .
