Rhodoleia parvipetala - FMWJ13422

Pot Size: 10 litre
Price: £85.00
It was only after a long hike through the forest that we set up a second camp to enable us to reach the exposed ridge at Y Tý in northern most Vietnam in 2011. Here we found good seed of this unlikely member of the witch hazel family on first encounter, with lax branches of very glossy dark green thick textured oblong leaves to 12cm long which can be silvery white below. Only forming a small wizen tree to 4m tall in this exposed site at 2360m, with still green starry seed capsules. Flowering mid to late summer in the wild, with a flamboyant display of Rhododendron-like inflorescences of bright pink flowers made up of many broadly spatulate petals. Best grown in a sheltered warm position in full sun to light shade in a freely draining organic soil that is neutral to acid.
