Illicium merrillianum - KWJ12146

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £100.00
From the starry seed capsules gathered from a small tree with only small elliptic glossy leaves glaucous below. It was several years later by the time we had grown the progeny to flowering size, when it bore an abundance of cherry-red cupped flowers composed of up to 20 elliptic tepals. From a seed collection gathered with Ben Kettle in 2007 on my fifth expedition to Vietnam. Gathered from the forest on an ill-fated descent of Fansipan, the highest mountain in the north of the country. We grow several plants in our gardens, which have shrugged off the -15C in the cold winter of 2010/11. Easily grown in a fertile humus enriched soil with good drainage, in good light without being too hot or light shade.
