Trochodendron aralioides from Taiwan - BSWJ1651

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A remarkable evergreen architectural small tree or large shrub, that we first collected the seed of in the mountain forest close to Dayuling, Eastern Taiwan in 1993 at 2650m. A much faster growing form than the more familiar Japanese, capable of attaining 2m within a few years, long-lived to 18m tall in the wild, but much less in the garden. Forming radiating branches in whirls up their trunks, availing a tiered effect in habit, bearing primitive green flowers late spring to early summer, in broad although short racemes. Coming into its own in the winter months when other evergreens are looking bedraggled, this can be outstanding in its fresh glossy green foliage. Easily grown in most fertile drained soils other than shallow chalk, in sun or shade.
