Pot Size: 10 litre
Description: Invaluable evergreen, bushy slow-growing large shrub-small tree, with stout blood-red young shoots and petioles bearing dark green leathery leaves, which emerge a coppery-red. Single sexed red spikes of flowers appear in spring, from the axils of the previous year's leaves. Best grown in part to light shade, as in the edge of a woodland, in a moisture retentive soil. Height 6m. Spread 5m. . Our own collection from Fukuoka, Kyushu Island, Japan in 2006. A very hardy species appreciating a bit of overhead protection from late frosts, lime tolerant.
