Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: One of the seed collections Peter Wharton and I collected from just below a drenched high altitude ridge only meters away from the Chinese border in northern Vietnam at around 2250m in the autumn of 2007. Where this evergreen ancient forest species formed an impressively tree to 12m tall. The younger leaves and shoots are covered in fine hairs affording this plant a very elegant appearance, while the older dark green glossy leaves are thick-textured and leathery to 20cm long. Bearing silvery white flowers with a custardy-honey like fragrance. Best grown in sun to light shade in a freely draining soil with good moisture retention out of freezing winds.
