Identify Please ?

Posted: 22/05/2012 at 16:46

Thank you all for the info.

What size to Japanese Azaleas grow to then ?  

Looking at your photos 'Salino' - the flower does look similar but what about the shape of the shrub ?  Mine is in the shape of a mini tree with a single stem about   25mm (1 inch) thick and 150mm (6 inches) high. Is yours the same ?

Identify Please ?

Can anyone tell me what this tree / shrub is please ?  Been growing in a 400mm pot for several years now.  I would like to plant out but don't know anything about it.  It's currently about 600mm high / 400mm spread.

Thanks again for all the info.

I'll have to check my soil type - i think it may be acidic.  Been growing hydrangers on the border for years now.  I've cleared it ready for re-planting now.

Anybody know the variety of cherry blossom 'zoomer44' mentions above ?

Hi,

Many thanks.

I do like magnolia. I'll check out magnolia stellata and the others 'flowerchild' suggested together with dwarf cherry and acers as you recommend.

Hi,

Thank you for the advice. I'll take a look at those you mentioned.

If anyone else could make any suggestions I'd be grateful. I suppose 4m could be the max height but no more than that. I'd like them to be low maintenance if possible.

Thanks again 'Flowerchild'.  I'll be in touch after I've taken a look on the web at those shrubs. Do you know of any good websites ? apart from this one I mean.

I have a border 11m x 3m. I would like to plant a row of 3 blossom trees - magnolia or crab apple possibly, or any other you can suggest ?

I would like like prolific flowering, low growing ( 2 - 3m max ), approx 2m spread with a nice leaf.  Can I plant in May - June ?

Many thanks.
