I’m expecting the following rare plants shortly:
4 Schefflera delavayi €47.50 (spectacular evergreen – precise hardiness is currently being investigated)
The following plants have long proven their hardiness:
10 Rhododendron macabeanum (young plants) €25 (with winter protection!)
16 Blechnum nova-zelandiae €25
4 Blechnum magellanicum €47.50
8 Blechnum nudum €15
4 Astelia nervosa €25
(Please note that we aren’t able to send plants to you!)
The best palm tree for your garden is Trachycarpus fortunei.We’ve got large ones available in pots of 130L with a trunk of around 2m (6 feet) in length! These plants are delivered at an angle (see photo). The price is € 400 (exclusive of transport) but for that price you’ve got an exceptionally beautiful plant in your garden! Small ones are priced from € 5.
Helen’s Hybrid is probably a cross between Musa sikkimensis Red Tiger and Musa Chinichampa.
Seedlings from this happy marriage are all different. Some resemble one parent, some the other, but most resemble both like the plant on this picture. Human children are sometimes faster or smarter than their parents. Also in the plant world, crosses are occasionally more vigorous than both parent plants. The plant shown on this photo grows abnormally fast in the garden, has inherited the beauty of Chinichampa and hopefully the frost resistance of sikkimensis!
Given maximum winter protection this seems to be a promising newcomer in our range of garden bananas. Small numbers of seedlings are available at the nursery, each with different characteristics. So they are not tissue-grown bananas (= not from the laboratory)! I can’t yet predict their hardiness for sure. Next year I’ll know more!

Vigorous selection from the Bandus nursery, 1 plant per customer in 35L pot: €65
The first flower opened on 5th august last year!
|Amazing message from inland Sweden about Bashania qingshengshanensis:
Things are growing fast here and we’re running out of space. So please help us by picking up some extremely hardy Phyllostachys nuda at 50% reduction this month! It’s top quality, well rooted and ideal as a hedge or windbreak. You can pick it up yourself or get in touch for pallet delivery.
Long flowering evergreen Magnolias flourish at de Groene Prins. Their wonderful fragrance is a delightful surprize to many. It’s a mystery why this hardy tree is still not well known.
Gorgeous Hedychium Rubra was the most stunning ornamental ginger last summer.
We still do have a few young plants in stock!
