Cephalotaxus fortunei

Pot Size: 5 litre
Price: £25.00
Because we participate in the Murabilia Flower Show in Lucca every year, we are given the privilege of being allowed to collect any of the seed that is growing in the Lucca Botanic Gardens (they organise the show). Hence we were so tempted by this noble conifer that we could not resist gathering some of its plum-like fruit when we saw the large handsome shrub that it formed there, still heavy in fruit when we were there in September. Forming a wide well branched shrub from its base clothed in narrow needles along its branchlets, which bear the olive-like fruit terminally. Best grown in part to full shade even in a calcareous soil.
