Exotic and jungle plants are becoming ever more popular in UK gardens, and Silk Tree Nurseries try to provide the hardiest and ones most likely to thrive in our conditions.  Be aware of the eventual size and spread of some of these plants, which can grow very large. 


Acacia dealbata  -   Silver Acacia Tree

Acacia dealbata is a  beautiful, delicate foliage tree which has Mimosa like leaves and stunning pom pom yellow flowers.
