Pot Size: 10 litre
Description: From one of my seed collections gathered on Mt. Seburiyama near Fukuoka Japan in the autumn of 2010 with Finlay Colley. Where this species in the laurel family formed a small upright evergreen tree 4-5m tall, with dark green glossy bold orbicular-elliptic leaves with 3 pronounced veins, which can be a spectacular fawn-brown on emergence. Meanwhile the ellipsoid fruit were a bright red in conspicuous axillary clusters, resulting from the fragrant yellow flowers borne March to April. Best grown is some shelter from the coldest winds in full sun and a moisture retentive soil with good drainage. Protect from severe frosts while young.
