Description: A very striking member of the witch hazel family that forms a sizeable tree in the wild, although only likely to obtain the size of a large evergreen shrub in gardens. From one of Dan Hinkley's seed collections gathered from the high mountain forests around Sapa in northern Vietnam in the autumn of 2006. Where it had formed a large shrub with lax branches of dark green ovate-elliptic thick textured leaves to 10cm long. Still retaining the 4-lockuled seed capsules containing the small winged seed which had succeeded the dark red flowers which consisted of many 3cm long spatulate petals March to May. Best grown with some shelter from freezing winds in full sun to encourage flowering in a well drained fertile soil with some added humus.
