Rehderodendron macrocarpum - BSWJ11841

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
One of our most impressive introductions that is proving to be hardy here. Locally nicknamed as Styrax on steroids, they have proved to be difficult to introduce as well as expensive to transport the large seed then taking as long as 5-6 years to germinate. Forming large ancient trees in the wild, the ground surrounding them strewn with their large sausage-shaped woody seed in autumn. The result of the abundant panicles of the Styrax-like (but larger) flowers borne in March-April. Usually medium trees in cultivation, with deciduous oblong-elliptic elongated leaves to 13cm long, remotely serrated and with long tips. Best grown in the shelter of other trees and shrubs when young, in a moisture retentive possibly acidic to neutral drained fertile soil.
