Neolitsea sericea - from Korea

A Far Eastern member of the laurel family, making a medium to large evergreen shrub. In this form the oval foliage expands particularly pinky-red in spring, covered in silken, golden shining hairs, before becoming green, when the glaucous underside becomes apparent. The deeply impressed veins are a give-away as to its family. Cream flowers in autumn.

Nerium oleander from Morocco

A collection of the wild Oleander from Tafraoute in the Anti Atlas mountains of Morocco. Large heads of deep-pink, periwinkle flowers from June to October, this will make a medium sized, rounded evergreen shrub for a sheltered site in full sun. Grows well in various parts of the UK nowadays and takes a fair amount of frost if sensibly sited. Great in a pot.

Nothofagus dombeyi

Nothofagus dombeyi

One of my favourite of all large trees. This very elegant, small leaved evergreen comes from the temperate rainforests of S Chile where it grows into wonderful flat topped, almost cedar like specimens with cherry-like bark when young. Here it is a fast growing tree with all parts quietly attractive, and simply beautiful as a whole. For any reasonable soil.

Nothofagus menziesii

Nothofagus menziesii

The Silver Beech from New Zealand, where it forms incredibly beautiful old trees in the pristine forests of Fiordland. In this country it is suited to the southern counties or anywhere on the Atlantic seaboard, where it will make a graceful, small to medium size evergreen tree with cherry-like bark and fairly rounded, small leaves, silvery when young. Very rarely seen.

Nothofagus moorei

A rare chance to obtain this evergreen species from the rainforests of E. Australia, which grows perfectly well in our milder counties, making a small to medium sized tree. The Camellia-like foliage is quite distinct, being dark green, comparatively large, leathery, glossy and sharply toothed. Like most Nothofagus the trunk becomes characterful with age.

Nyssa sylvatica 'Miss Scarlet' (new)

Guess what colour this one turns in autumn? Yup, superb scarlet foliage is seen as the leaves senesce in October and November if planted in good light. Particularly lustrous deep green foliage in the summer months, this medium sized very hardy tree makes a good specimen on lime free soils. A particularly prolific fruiter with little blue-black berries in autumn.

Nyssa sylvatica 'Wisley Bonfire'

Nyssa sylvatica 'Wisley Bonfire'

This is the superb clone of the American 'Tupelo' that has grown and been admired at RHS Wisley for many years. Strangely, often depicted in RHS publications as a normal Tupelo, it is very distinct from all others I have seen. Its crown structure is very uniform, like a Japanese Pagoda, with superb scarlet, orange and yellow autumn colour. Lime free soil.
