The Ash-Leaved Maple tree (Acer negundo 'Flamingo') is rather interesting in that it carries striking variegated coloured leaves, that is they are a pale green colour with salmon-pink edges, which change to white as spring changes to summer. Groups of yellowy-green flowers in spring are a feature of interest with this tree. This tree is fast-growing, with a broadly spreading form and with a final height of 12m (40ft) is ideal for a medium sized garden. We recommend this tree is planted in a partially shady spot as its delicate leaves are sensitive to hot, intense sun.
Ash-leaved maple is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 2.0 metres in a 7-12L container, which means that this tree has an already established root system and therefore this tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental TreesClimate Change
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
