Staphylea colchica - BSWJ16009

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £30.00
From our collecting trip to Russia, where our colleagues from Moscow Botanic Gardens invited us to collect in the Sochi area along the Black Sea coast and the surrounding mountains in 2018. This large shrub or small tree 2-4 m tall, was plentiful by the forest trail along the Dagomis River, with long slender upright branches bearing leaves composed of 3-5 ovate-elliptical pointed leaflets to 13 x 5 cm. With terminal and axillary racemes of pendulous arching white flowers with sepals to 14 mm long in April-May, which precede the 3 inflated conjoined seed capsules to 10 cm long. Easily grown in sun or part shade in any type of drained fertile soil.
