Neolitsea sericea - BSWJ12738

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £75.00
From seed we collected in the autumn of 2010, from a colony of trees growing atop of steep cliffs on the south coast of Kõjedo one of the many islands off the south coast of mainland Korea. Where this species in the laurel family formed a colony of large shrubs to small trees to 7m tall. With rich dark green glossy bold orbicular-elliptic leaves with 3 pronounced veins above, downy gold turning silver below, 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.
