Styrax tonkinensis - WWJ11868

Pot Size: 5 litre
Price: £50.00
From a tree 7-8m tall growing in dense vegetation on a steep treacherous hillside that we came across while escaping killer wasps in the cool mountain Séo Mí Tý in northern Vietnam in the autumn of 2007, with Peter Wharton. With numerous grey-brown branches of alternate elliptic leaves to 10-18 cm long, densely grey stellate below bearing large quantities of woolly seed in racemes towards the ends of the branches. Which had succeeded the many white pendant flowers to 2.5 cm long with golden haired calyces May-June. Best grown in sun to light shade out of freezing winds in a well drained soil with some moisture retention.
