Rhodoleia championii - WWJ11858

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
It is sad to think that not long after we collected the seed of this gorgeous small evergreen tree the bulldozers buried it, making way for a new road. Here it had formed a large multi stemmed shrub only 4m tall, well branched with ovate to broadly ovate thick parchment textured leaves to 16 × 10cm, dark green glossy above whitish silver below. In February-April the congested scaly buds had opened to a display of near Rhododendron-like flowers of red to bright pink, composed of numerous spatulate petals, resulting in the small seed we collected from the 5-cavity capsules. Best grown in a warm sunny sheltered site, protected from freezing winds in a lime free humus rich well drained soil. Hardy for us here to -15C.
