Staphylea colchica - BSWJ16037

Pot Size: 4 litre
Price: £35.00
A large shrub or small tree usually 2-4 m tall in the wild, but only 3m tall where we gathered this seed in one of the coastal forests. With long slender upright branches bearing leaves composed of 3-5 ovate-elliptical pointed leaflets to 13 x 5 cm, with terminal and axillary racemes of pendulous arching white flowers with sepals to 14 mm long in April-May, which precede the 3 inflated conjoined seed capsules to 10 cm long. From our collecting trip to Russia, where our colleagues from Moscow Botanic Gardens invited us to collect in the Sochi area along the Black Sea coast and the surrounding mountains in 2018. Easily grown in sun or part shade in any type of drained fertile soil.
