Clethra fabri - BSWJ11702

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
This has to be one of the most ornamental species of this highly regarded genus. Sadly endangered where we find the small trees growing in the mountains of the far north of Vietnam, normally seen cut down and regenerating strongly with bright red hairy stems. Were that not enough to tempt you, the foliage and new growth are also bright red only slowly transforming to green as the season progresses and the ovate-elliptic softly hairy leaves expand to 15-20 × 8-10cm. If you are still not tempted there are terminal inflorescences of 20cm long spikes of small white flowers in summer. Best grown in a moisture retentive drained soil, in sun or light shade sheltered from freezing winds.
