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. One of our most impressive introductions that has proved to be unflinching in its hardiness here. Forming large ancient trees in the wild, with elliptic-lanceolate serrulate foliage 10cm long with acuminate tips on red petioles, the ground surrounding them strewn with their large sausage-shaped spotted woody seed in autumn. The result of the abundant panicles of the Styrax-like (but larger) flowers borne in April-May. A collection gathered by Peter and Sarah Wharton during our expedition in 2006. Best grown with other trees and shrubs when young, in a moisture retentive possibly acidic to neutral drained fertile soil.
