Rehderodendron kweichowense - WWJ12019

Pot Size: 10 litre
Price: £100.00
The most easily identified of all the species that we find growing in the high mountains in the north of Vietnam. Which is where Peter Wharton and myself first came across this species in a damp misty forest, soon recognising the distinctive broadly sausage-shaped longitudinally ribbed green fruit as it was then, still covered in a dense layer of stellate (star-shaped) hair. As were the stems and ovate-elliptic leaves to 20 x 9.5cm with gingery petioles and mid-ribs, that had held the panicles of flared white flowers in April-May. Forming medium sized well branched sturdy trees 10-12m tall in those conditions. Best grown with other trees and shrubs when young, in a moisture retentive possibly acidic to neutral drained fertile soil.
