Pterostyrax corymbosa - BSWJ11535

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Only forming a small tree 5-6m tall by 5m wide when Sue and I found this collection in the autumn of 2006 at around 1,000m high up on Mt. Kamegamori in the north of the island of Shikoku Japan. Here it grew with its distinctive orbicular-ovate acuminate leaves, which had been a perfect foil to the broad pendant panicles of fragrant white flowers born in May and June. Replaced by 5-winged fruit when we found it on a very frosty morning in November. Easily cultivated in most types of fertile deep soils apart from shallow chalk soils
