Heteropterys glabra

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Generously shared with us by the JC Roulston Arboretum part of North Carolina University. From what is to us an obscure South American plant family, but intriguing nonetheless, as we discovered during a couple of occasions we have encountered the maple-like winged seed (samaras) in the wild while collecting in Colombia. Forming an evergreen twiggy shrub to 1.5 m high by 2 m wide, with narrow to widely cordate small leaves, bearing in late summer small yellow flowers soon followed by the conspicuous pink seed. Best grown in good light with plenty of sun, in a well drained soil in a sheltered site out of cold winds.
