Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: A collection gathered with Peter Wharton in the autumn of 2007 from Ban Khoang in the north of Vietnam, where we have only seen them forming small to medium sized trees, this collection from a 13m specimen. With oblong-elliptic remotely serrated foliage 16cm long, the ground surrounding them strewn with their beaked broad barrel-shaped longitudinally ribbed woody seed to 8cm long in autumn. The result of the abundant racemes of the Styrax-like (but larger) flowers borne in March-April. Nicknamed as Styrax on steroids here, they have proved to be difficult and expensive to introduce taking as long as 5 years to germinate. Best grown with other trees and shrubs when young, in a moisture retentive possibly acidic to neutral drained fertile soil.
