Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: From my collection accompanied by Finlay Colley and Dan Hinkley gathered in late autumn from the Dasyueshan Forest in the west of Taiwan at 2000m in 2007. Where the seed we gathered was from a (reachable) 2m tall shrub growing from what appeared to be solid rock, as the winged seed had been blown from the surrounding trees that were up to 20m tall. Here it formed a densely branched shrub well clothed in thick textured dark green glossy leaves to 15cm long sometimes shallowly serrated in their extremities. Almost hidden by the white autumn borne Camellia-like flowers with a large central boss of yellow stamen. Best grown in shelter from freezing winds in full sun to ripen the wood, in an humus rich soil that has good drainage.
