Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: Potentially a large long lived tree in its natural habitat, although far more reserved in British gardens. With a strong affinity to Magnolia in the large glossy foliage, which in this case are large paddle-shaped to 30cm long, with the venation impressed above in such a way as to pucker the upper surface. Not flowered for us yet, but is stated to be April-May in the wild while fruiting October to December. From a collection gathered with Peter Wharton from a small to medium tree in the forests of Fansipan northern Vietnam in 2007. Easily grown in a moisture retentive drained fertile soil in sun to light shade, best sheltered from freezing winds.
