Small Tree, Big Tree

Small Tree, Big Tree

The majority of the decidous trees in the gardens have shed all their leaves, the Horse Chestnut, Beech, Lime and most of the Plane are bare but for a few their autumn display is just reaching its peak. Two such trees can be found next to each other on the Nuffield lawn, a Persian Ironwood, Perrotia persica 'Venessa', and a Hornbeam, Carpinus betulus. The big tree, the Hornbeam, towers above the small tree, the Persian Ironwood, but it is the smaller of the two that is producing a far more eye catching display of autumn colours. Planted four years ago this young tree has been the perfect addition to the autumn display in the gardens and will only get better as it grows, although it will never be as big as its neighbour.
