Dichroa cynea - HWJK2430

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Originating from one of our seed collections gathered at 1,250m from the Mewa Kola north-eastern Nepal, on our decent from Topke Khola in the autumn of 2002. A Himalayan shrub to 3m tall, but more like half that in British gardens. Closely related to and resembling Hydrangea (recently discovered that they hybridise with Hydrangea). With leaves which are semi-evergreen, persisting in sheltered areas. Flowering August to frost, even through a mild winter, with dense terminal branched cymes of pale blue to pink all fertile flowers (depending on pH), followed by blue to purple fleshy fruit. Shelter out of cold winds, sun or part shade. Syn. D. febrifuga (was assumed to be the Himalayan species).
