Description:
A highly ornamental, but confused species as previous collections into cultivation were from less favourable areas for hardiness. Forming medium-sized trees in the wild 7-10m tall clothed with 15cm long very shallowly lobed ovate-elliptic leathery leaves. Which slowly transform to a dark glossy-green, in cultivation turning crimson in autumn. Bearing long dense pendant racemes approximately 1.5 the length of the leaves, of small plump seed with 2cm long samaras held at a wide angle 130°, running in several parallel lines with the raceme rachis. From one of our collections on the Fansipu trail in northern Vietnam at almost 2,000m in 2011. Best grown in a fertile drained soil with shelter from freezing winds.
