Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Description: A rare and ornamental shrubby tree, which has been considered to be tender, but unlikely to be so as this collection from the eastern Himalayas at an altitude of 3,000m will prove. Most likely described as a variety of A. hookeri originally, this form differs greatly to our Vietnamese forms, with more rounded and even less lobed leaves which are decidedly deciduous. Meanwhile the seed and samaras are larger held in tight V shaped (less than 90°) pairs, in shorter clustered spikes approximately the same length as the leaves. Easily grown in a fertile moisture retentive soil in part shade to sun, best sheltered from cold drying winds.
