Rhaphiolepis minor - BSWJ14669

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £55.00
We first spotted this dwarf shrub on the islands along the south coast of Korea in 2010, remarking how similar it was in habit to a dwarf Rhododendron. Where they only formed low shrubs to 30-40 cm tall by a little wider in those very exposed conditions. Bearing small ovate thick textured leaves 3-4 cm long on reddish stems, unfortunately only bearing a few fruit (resulting from the white flowers April-May). Whereas this collection was growing in a slightly more sheltered position on the coast in Chiba, on the Pacific coast of Japan. Which may explain why it bore more fruit. Best grown in a drained soil that does not dry out in full sun and exposure. The foliage will be much larger in rich soils.
