One of the joys of my garden is that I have the space to plant some trees. I have been able to plant many of the various trees that are on that list that has accumulated over the years. The progression of this tree planting has not always been easy. A couple of trees that I have planted have struggled for various reasons. I tried several times to get a Davidia to grow, it needed relocating, it needed some tender loving care and it needed not to have a huge chunk of poplar tree fall on it. It has however, done really well since its last adventure and I think I can declare the Davidia now established and growing.
Bluebell Arboretum I went.
and then the winner was found,
Liquidambar styraciflua ‘Stared’. I also could not see a difference and so a purchase was made.
Hang on a moment I hear you say, that dark photograph seems to show another tree, with a definite non-liquidambar leaf and you used a plural back there when you talked about unpacking them.
I might have accidentally bought a white mulberry tree as well. This tree might now be in the Courtyard as a container tree. I will show more pictures of it as time goes on but today I was focussing on the liquidambars.
