Ternstroemia aff. chapaensis - WWJ11918

Pot Size: 12 litre
Price: £55.00
Description:
Originating from seed I collected with Peter Wharton from the northern most area of Vietnam on the border with China, in the forests of Y Ty in the autumn of 2007. Where it had formed a large shrub to 4m tall with slender grayish stems, well branched above with dark green red tipped glossy broadly elliptic leathery leaves to 8 x 3.5cm on red petioles. Bearing at that time masses of axillary few or in clusters of red-pink depressed globose fruit 1.5cm across on pink-white stalks 1.5-2.5 long, these were the result of the pale yellow to white camellia-like flowers 2-3cm across borne July-August. Best grown in good light in shelter from freezing winds in an acid to neutral well drained fertile soil with a good quantity of humus added for moisture retention.
