Eriobotrya aff. elliptica v. petelotii - BWJ16323

Pot Size: 10 litre
Price: £50.00
New to cultivation, an evergreen glabrous tree to 5-10m tall, with stout brownish branchlets. Bearing oblong-lanceolate finely tipped leathery serrated leaves to 25cm long, tapering to 2-4 cm long petioles, veins impressed above. Bearing terminal panicles of many white round petaled flowers with contrasting black stamen, followed by obovoid to sub-globose fruit, 8-12 mm across. From seed that my Vietnamese guide had already collected before my arrival there in late 2018, from one of the mountains overlooking The Red River, north of Lao Cai. Which were already germinating when I found them in the back of our vehicle a month later. Easily grown in any type of fertile drained soil with adequate moisture retention, either in sun or light shade. Protect from freezing winds.
