Oreopanax glabrifolius - BSWJ14728

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £60.00
A welcomed sight at the end of the day as we were descending into Manizales from Colombia's Central Mountain Range after a day's collecting. Here it had formed a large shrub in maturity, with very glossy dark green foliage with conspicuously marked venation above and pale brown scaly indumentum below. Some of the leaves were tri-lobbed while the majority were broadly ovate, indicating their maturity. Meanwhile there were terminal spaced stiffly branched infructescences of plump black fruit. Individual plants can be dioecious (plants either male or female) in this genus, which will only become obvious as they mature. Protect while young. Not tested for hardiness yet, best grown in a well drained compost with moisture retention, in good light.
