Rehderodendron macrocarpum - WWJ11952

Pot Size: 15 litre
Price: £85.00
Description:
Nicknamed as Styrax on steroids here, they have proved to be difficult and expensive to introduce taking as long as 5 years to germinate. Forming a sizeable tree in the wilds of nornthern most Vietnam, which is where Peter Wharton and I gathered this collection in the autumn of 2007. Where this tree was 20-25m tall, luckily the ground surrounding it was strewn with its sausage-shaped longitudinally ribbed woody seed to 9cm long. The result of the abundant racemes of the Styrax-like (but larger) flowers borne in March-April. With deciduous oblong-elliptic elongated leaves remotely serrated long tipped foliage 13cm long. Best grown with other trees and shrubs when young, in a moisture retentive possibly acidic to neutral drained fertile soil.
