Pot Size: 15 litre
Description: After an exhaustive search in our happy hunting grounds in 2007, around Fansipan the highest mountain in the north of Vietnam. A new seed collection, from a small handsome evergreen tree with 17cm long oblong-shaped long-tipped leaves, which emerge a coppery red ageing a thick-textured glossy-green above while conspicuously silvery-white/glaucous below. Usually only forming a large shrub or small trees in British gardens with semi-persistent leaves in the colder gardens. Best grown sheltered from freezing winds, ideally with a bit of overhead cover in good light in a drained humusy soil without too much nutrients. Previously offered as A. oblongum.
