Description: Nicknamed as Styrax on steroids here, they have proved to be difficult to introduce as well as expensive to transport the large seed then taking as long as 5-6 years to germinate. One of our most impressive introductions that is proving to be hardy here as well as in the Pacific North-West of North America. Forming large ancient trees in the wild, with oblong-ovate remotely serrated foliage 16cm long with acuminate tips on red petioles, the ground surrounding them strewn with their large sausage-shaped woody seed in autumn. The result of the abundant panicles of the Styrax-like (but larger) flowers borne in March-April. Best grown with other trees and shrubs when young, in a moisture retentive possibly acidic to neutral drained fertile soil.
