The line between whether a plant is a "tree" or a "shrub" is sometimes very thin and quite blurry! We use the following criteria to decide which type applies to a certain plant:
Magnolia macrophylla var asheii
Magnolia x loebneri 'Donna'
Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Goshiki'
Picea omorika 'Pendula Bruns'
Picea orientalis 'Skylands'
Pinus wallichiana 'Zebrina'
Sideroxylon thornei, Swamp Buckthorn
