Nigra has deep, rich purple foliage and single, pale pink flowers opening from darker pink buds before the leaves. This is a very beautiful medium-sized, round-headed deciduous tree and is one of the first to flower in early spring.

The right tree in the right place can transform a garden whether formal or natural. There are many reasons to grow trees in our gardens but mainly it is for their ornamental value, flowers, berries or autumn colour. Even when leafless in winter they still have their own beauty and form.
Care should be taken to choose a tree that is suitable for the space you have available. Look at the eventual height and spread of the chosen specimen.
Most of our ornamental trees are delivered as bare rooted specimens with approximate height of up to 1.5m/5ft depending on the variety.

Delivery from November- early April
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
