Rehderodendron indochinensis - BSWJ12115

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
One of our most impressive introductions that has proved to be unflinching in its hardiness here. Nicknamed as Styrax on steroids, they have proved to be difficult and expensive to introduce taking as long as 5 years to germinate. A collection gathered with Ben Kettle (ferns) in the autumn of 2007 from the slopes of Fansipan in the north of Vietnam, where we have only seen them forming small to medium sized trees, this collection from a small tree only 7-8m tall. With elliptic-lanceolate serrulate foliage 10cm long with acuminate tips on red petioles, the ground surrounding it strewn with its small sausage-shaped spotted woody seed that autumn. The result of the abundant panicles of the Styrax-like (but larger) flowers borne in March-April. Best grown with other trees and shrubs when young
