Illicium philippinense - CWJ12466

Pot Size: 15 litre
Price: £75.00
From a collection I gathered accompanied by Dan Hinkley and Finlay Colley from a forested area on Dasyueshan Taichung District of Taiwan in 2007. Being December the seed of this species was long gone, luckily I had permission to gather seedlings, one of the benefits of working with the Taiwan Natural Science Museum for so long. Here it had formed medium sized trees to 8m tall with small leathery glossy aromatic leaves 4-12cm long. Bearing white pink tinted flowers consisting of up to 25 strap-shaped tepals March through April for us. Easily grown in a fertile humus enriched soil with good drainage, in good light without being too hot or light shade.
