Illicium aff. griffithii - WWJ11971

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £85.00
From a collection gathered with Peter Wharton from a small tree or large shrub in the forests of Y Ty bordering with China in the very north of Vietnam in 2007. A species which it is easy to see the affinity to Magnolia in, with the large glossy foliage, combined with the unmistakable (star-anise-like) seed capsules with 13 carpels rendering it easily identifiable even when the scented large red flowers are not to be seen. Flowering for us from early summer intermittently through to autumn, while fruiting July to December. Easily grown in a moisture retentive drained fertile soil in sun to light shade, best sheltered from freezing winds.
