Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Description: Forming sizeable trees in the wild with 15cm long shallowly lobed elliptic leaves, which slowly transform to a dark glossy-green above again turning crimson in autumn. Still very scarce in cultivation a semi-evergreen colourful species which has semi-persistent thick-textured foliage in British gardens, where it only forms a large shrub or small tree, with young shoots and leaves emerging a brilliant red. All this graced by long dense pendant racemes of small winged seed when we found it, in the cool mountain Séo Mí Tý of northern Vietnam with Peter Wharton, in the autumn of 2006 at 1800m. Best grown in a situation sheltered from freezing winds.
