The beautiful soft blue foliage of this spreading, small to medium-sized tree is undoubtedly its most appealing aspect. Use this tree as a feature plant where its blue leaves can be used as a background to either contrast or blend with other colours in your garden. It can also be pruned into a hedge if you are prepared to trim it regularly through the warmer months of the year. If it is left unpruned it becomes a low maintenance tree.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
