Trees and shrubs
Wiggle Tree (Cotinus coggygria)
The wig tree (Cotinus coggygria) is attractive in the fall in two ways: its inflorescence and its flaming orange fall color. The flowers themselves are not that striking, but the red flower stems that remain after flowering are and cover the tree like a wig. By pruning the tree in the spring, you keep it nice and compact and it produces more and more beautifully tinted leaves. It is sometimes said that the wig tree cannot withstand frost, but this one does: ‘Ancot’, ‘Grace’, ‘Purpureus’ and ‘Royal Purple’. – Sun * flowering 6-7 * height up to 3 m

White mountain ash (Sorbus koehneana)
Most gardeners know the rowan (Sorbus) as a (street) tree that, after flowering, is adorned with large, white umbels with orange-red berries. An exception to this is the Sorbus koehneana. It also flowers with white umbels, but then forms decorative clusters of white berries; that is why it is also called white mountain ash. Beautiful in combination with the grey-green, pinnate leaves.

This small tree or large shrub likes a nutrient-rich, moist to moist soil; it is very tolerant of acidity: from pH 5.5 to 8. Leave a lot of space around the tree because it roots superficially, absorbs quite a bit of moisture and nutrients, making it difficult for perennials. – Sun/half-shade * flowering 5-6 * height up to 3 m * preferably no afternoon sun
