Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: A mouth-watering tree which is very scarce in western cultivation due to the difficulty of propagation, yet is a timber tree to 30m tall in its native range due to its rapid growth rate. A very distinct primitive genus a member of the Hamamelis family, which is fairly obvious once the pale yellow fluffy flowers are seen in short 7-9 flowered inflorescences. With very distinct glossy leathery broadly ovate foliage 8-13cm long, sometimes palmately 3-lobed on juvenile leaves, emerging from very distinct upright flat oblong buds in the form of a pair stipules. Only suitable for mild locations, possibly in a lime free drained soil with a high organic content. Shelter from freezing winds. We only have large plants in 40 lt pots available for collection only.
