Description: It was John Hillier that commented on one of his visits to our growing fields, that it has the best foliage of any species. Which is hardly surprising when you become acquainted with this subspecies, as they are bronzy from spring through to autumn on a handsome leaf to-boot. Ultimately growing to a sizeable tree with grey exfoliating bark with glandular villous branchlets. Bearing ovate conspicuously laterally veined serrated leaves to 12 × 5.5cm, papery in texture. With terminal reddish cylindrical catkins held upright when ripe late summer into autumn. From one of our seed collection gathered in a remote valley on our way to Phansipu northern Vietnam in 2011. Best grown in a fertile soil with some moisture retention in either sun or shade, protecting from severe cold.
