Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: An evergreen ancient forest species, with the younger leaves and shoots 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, silvery to white below. Bearing silvery white flowers with a custardy-honey like fragrance in mid summer. One of the seed Peter Wharton and I collected from just below a drenched high altitude ridge only meters away from the Chinese border in northern Vietnam at around 2050m 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.
