Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Description: A chance find in the depth of the forest close to where we had set up camp for the week, in the forest of Y Ty in the very north of Vietnam in 2011. A recently felled tree of medium size heavy in seed lay across our path. A handsome evergreen tree with 17cm long lance-shaped leaves, which emerge a coppery red ageing to thick-textured glossy-green above while conspicuously white/glaucous below. Usually only forming a large shrub or small trees in British gardens with persistent leaves. Best grown sheltered from freezing winds, ideally with a bit of overhead cover in good light in a drained humusy soil without too much nutrients. Previously offered as A. oblongum.
