PLANTS WITH A SLENDER OR COLUMNAR (FASTIGIATE) GROWHT HABIT

  CATEGORIES:  Shrubs | Trees

Narrow spaces in the garden require slender plants that won’t impede cars or pedestrians. Some plants grow naturally in this manner whilst others may need a little coaxing and pruning to keep them in shape. These are a few of the better known fastigiate plants available locally.
