Oreopanax echinops - BSWJ10302

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £75.00
One of the most dramatic species of these luxurious ivy relatives, that we collected from the mountain forest of Chile Verde, Quetzaltenango Province in Guatemala in 2004. Occasionally seen in exotic gardens on the Cote d'Azur with strong upright trunks (as they can be a sizeable tree in the wild) holding the ginger haired petioles at right angles to the scale scared trunks. Carrying the rounded 3 to 5 foliate thin textured gingery large leaves, supported by robust veins covered in ginger hair. Bearing upright racemes of ball-like umbels of flowers followed by white ageing purple fruit on female plants. Best grown in good light to light shade out of strong winds, in a rich drained soil/compost, frost-free to keep foliage, or short periods to -5C to keep the wood. These plants are too large
