Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: Resulting from one of my seed collections gathered from close to the Tram Trom Pass in northern Vietnam in 2007, just as the area was being demolished to make way for a new highway. Where this plant formed a small multi-stemmed tree to 4m tall and wide, well clothed with branches of elongated leathery dark green leaves 20-30cm long. Bearing elongated brilliant pink cone-like seed capsules splitting to reveal the red-orange aril covered seed a result of the scented solitary pink ageing darker flowers 15cm across carried in mid summer. Best grown in a relatively sheltered sight in sun or light shade in a lime-free to neutral fertile drained soil.
