Rhodoleia championii - BSWJ11603

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £200.00
It is sad to think that not long after we collected the seed of this gorgeous small evergreen tree the bulldozers buried it, making way for a new road. Here it had formed a classic shaped tree only 5-6m tall, well branched above the vertical trunk, with ovate to broadly ovate thick parchment textured leaves to 16 × 10cm, dark green glossy above whitish silver below. In February-April the congested scaly buds had opened to a display of near Rhododendron-like flowers of red to bright pink, composed of numerous spatulate petals, resulting in the small seed we collected from the multi cavity capsules. Best grown in a warm sunny sheltered site, protected from freezing winds in a lime free humus rich well drained soil. Hardy for us here to -15C.
