Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A gratefully received gift from Maurice Foster of Kent, which is so much admired in our garden we thought we should reproduce some to offer. For us it has produced a small deciduous bushy tree or more of a shrub with lots of slender branches held at an upward angle, the young vigorous growth is a glossy chestnut colour, while the older branches mature grey. Bearing obovate-oblong thin textured leaves to 20cm or so long, but can get to 30cm in richer soils. The leaves are pleasantly textured with prominent parallel venation, up to 24 pairs on this variety. Complemented by an abundance of white flowered panicles to 25cm long, May-July followed by small round black fruit by late summer. Easily grown in good light to part shade in a drained fertile soil.
