Pot Size: 5 litre
Description: From seed we gathered in the world famous JC Raulston Arboretum in North Carolina, after delivering a lecture there in 2011. From a large shrub with clear grayish brown stems, well branched above with dark green glossy broadly elliptic leathery leaves to 12 x 5.5cm on red petioles. Bearing at that time masses of axillary few or in clusters of purplish red globose fruit on red stalks, these were the result of the pale yellow to white camellia-like flowers 2-3cm across borne July-August. Best grown in good light in shelter from freezing winds in an acid to neutral well drained fertile soil with a good quantity of humus added for moisture retention.
