Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: From one of our seed collections gathered from the ancient forests on the Korean island of Cheju (Jeju) in the autumn of 2001. Where this species had formed large multi-stemmed shrubs with conspicuous striated bark, or even small old trees with upright trunks to 6m tall. A medium sized shrub to 3m broad, with elliptic opposite thick-textured leathery leaves which turn to a decorative pink in autumn, held on slender branches, making them appear pinnate in the wild. Bearing a mass of rose-pink orbicular fruiting capsules some just starting to split revealing the bright red-orange aril-covered seed within. Easily grown in any type of fertile drained soil in sun or shade, with more flowers produced in sun.
