Polyspora longicarpa - DJHV06041

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
From one of Dan Hinkley's collections gathered in the autumn of 2006 in the north of Vietnam. Technically trees although mostly seen as large shrubs, with striking deepest dark green and glossiest glossy leaves imaginable a wonderful foil for the large white (12-15cm across) Camellia-like flowers borne in autumn in the wild. Best grown in a lime free (?) drained fertile soil with some good moisture retention in full sun to light shade sheltered from freezing winds. An Asian genus only recently segregated from Gordonia a close relative of Camellia which it has a close affinity to, but on a larger scale.
