Pot Size: 10 litre
Description: A seed collection from our 2010 expedition to South Korea, where we found a recently fallen tree within the forest of Naejangsan. An area that proclaims that it is the northern-most outpost of this species on mainland Korea. Here it had formed an evergreen bushy small tree or large shrub. With stout shoots which when extending are a bright red in colour, bearing dark green narrowly obovate leaves glaucous to white in colour below, held on bright red stems (petioles). Small either all male or all female flowers, appear in late spring in the new leaf axils. Best grown in light shade to sun, which best mimics edge of forest, which would be its preferred aspect, in a moisture retentive soil. Height 6m. Spread 5m. Care should be taken not to alter the soil level (at least not upward).
