Magnolia floribunda v. tonkinensis - WWJ12011

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
This evergreen ancient forest species formed an impressive tree to 15m tall where we collected the seed. The younger leaves and shoots are covered in fine hairs affording this plant a very elegant appearance, while the older dark green glossy leaves are thick-textured and leathery to 20cm long. Bearing silvery white flowers with a custardy-honey like fragrance. Originating from one our collections gathered by Peter Wharton and myself from the steep high altitude forest drenched at that time only a short way from the Chinese border in northern Vietnam at around 2350m in the autumn of 2007. Best grown in sun to light shade in a freely draining soil with good moisture retention out of freezing winds.
