Oreopanax bogotensis - BSWJ14900

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £150.00
A personal favourite of ours. As are most of this genus it is a fabulous foliage plant, from the ivy family. A variable species with stiff thick textured foliage dark glossy green above with varying shades of rusty brown indumentum on the undersides. Normally simple ovate-shaped when young, but varying from tri to five-lobbed with maturity. It proved to be one of the most difficult species to track down as seed, although not rare in the mountains behind Bogota (hence the name). Which is where we eventually found it after 3 years of searching in 2016. Best grown in a drained fertile soil in full sun to part shade, with only short exposure to light frost.
