Clethra petelotii - FMWJ13401/5

Pot Size: 15 litre
Price: £85.00
Originating from a seed collection gathered from a very exposed ridge on the Vietnamese border with China in Y Tý at 2340m in the autumn of 2011. Possibly the most ornamental species of this genus, but sadly endangered where we find it in the mountains of the far north of Vietnam. Growing into a different habit in the exposed conditions to only around 1m tall with bright red hairy stems. While foliage and new growth are also bright red only slowly transforming to green as the season progresses and the ovate-elliptic softly hairy leaves can expand to 15-20 × 8-10cm. If you are still not tempted there are terminal inflorescences of 20cm long spikes of small white flowers in summer. Best grown in a moisture retentive drained soil, in sun or light shade sheltered from freezing winds.
