Our Top 3 Traditional Style Plants

Luma apiculata Cloud (Cloud Tree)

There are not too many trees that make a statement quite like the Cloud Tree! Their impressive form and structure make them the ideal feature tree. Cloud Trees are used in many different garden styles including formal and modern. Whatever style garden you have, this Cloud Tree is sure to impress your neighbours! They are quite the investment though so make sure to do some research on how to care for them!

Olea Europaea (Olive Tree)

Mmm, olives... Good looking and drought-tolerant! What more could you ask for? Capable of growing up to seven metres in height, Olive Trees can be grown in both warm and cool climates. This is one to take care of though! Trees take three to five years of growth until they produce their first harvest and most only become fully productive after eight or nine years.

Magnolia Grandiflora (Magnolia Teddy Bear)

Strong and elegant, the Magnolia Teddy Bear is a relatively small and compact Magnolia, growing only to 4-6m. It will bloom on and off right through the year and produce heavenly scents. Magnolias such as Teddy Bear are best grown in full sun as a feature tree. Moderate watering is required, with a little extra love needed throughout Summer.
