Hovenia dulcis - BSWJ11024

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £85.00
A most unusual small tree with handsome glossy ovate leaves to 15cm long on lenticellate dark brown to black branches. Bearing cymes of pale flowers in June terminally and in the upper leaf axils, resulting in an unusual fleshy ‘fruit’ similar in shape to a stag-horn. Which are edible when ripe tasting of raisins, hence its vernacular name of 'Raisin Tree'. One of our collections gathered in 2005 from Fukui central Japan. Easily grown in a drained fertile soil in sun or light shade. *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** These plants are only supplied as open ground/bare-rooted plants. The trees are too tall to be sent by courier, hence arrangements will have to be made.
