Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: Described as a medium-sized long lived tree in its natural habitat, although probably more reserved in British gardens. With a strong affinity to Magnolia (they used to share the same family) in the glossy foliage, which in this case are narrowly paddle-shaped to 20cm long, with the venation impressed above. Not flowered for us yet, but is stated to be red to white in April-June in the wild while fruiting August to October. From a collection gathered with Ben Kettle of Rickards Ferns, from a small to medium tree growing on the banks of a fast flowing river below Fansipan northern Vietnam in 2007. Easily grown in a moisture retentive drained fertile soil in sun to light shade, best sheltered from freezing winds.
