(Styracaceae)

Parastyrax species nova - BWJ15185

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £50.00
Description:
This is a best guess identification on my part, as this genus is not known in cultivation. It could of course be a new genus, but lets not runaway with it. The fruit I collected (3 times) matches, with a persistent calyx and very fleshy exocarp surrounding the woody capsule, which holds the tiny seed in rows. The flowers are of the same vein as Rehderodendron, but described as being more congested. Previously to this collection I had only seen medium-sized shrubs, meanwhile this was a small tree left after illegal clearing. This was from a spring collection in April 2017, when we were attempting to get conservation status for the Y Ty area of northern most Vietnam. Which I am happy to state that it now has.
