Polyspora speciosa - BSWJ11750

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
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. Worthy of being grown for its handsome foliage alone, which are to 20 cm (8") long, exceptionally glossy and thick, while serrated in the upper half of the oblong-elliptic leaves. Bearing in late summer into early winter large white Camellia-like flowers to 20cm across. The populations we are finding in northern Vietnam have survived for many thousands of years, retreating to altitude during glaciation later re-colonizing the lower ground as the ice melted. They called it global warming. Best grown in a warm situation.
