Diospyros cf. lotus - FMWJ13164

Pot Size: 10 litre
Price: £40.00
This species was initially considered to be D. lotus, but I am reconsidering that identification, hence it will take a bit more time for me to work it out. The foliage is softly pubescent while the fruits were small with a large calyx. From a seed collection I gathered from a remote valley deep in the Hoang Lien Mountains in northern Vietnam in the autumn of 2011. From a small tree growing on the riverbank, where some of our crew had been scoffing the fruit for their breakfast. Best grown in a warm situation sheltered from freezing winds in a reasonably drained soil with some moisture retention.
