Neoshirakia sebiferum - CWJ12819

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Known as the tallow tree for the exceptionally wax covered seed harvested in China. Forming a small well proportioned tree with broadly ovate to rounded leaves, which furnish it with a fiery autumnal display. While at the same time the rather large seed capsules which hang by a thread-like stalk, burst open to reveal the inner waxy seed. Best grown in a sheltered warm site out of freezing winds, in a well drained soil. From one of my seed collections gathered with Finlay Colley near Fukuoka southern Japan in 2010.
