Description: One of those memorable moments was when stopping on one of the Himalayan trails at 2930m I scanned the tree canopy with my binoculars. ‘’God it’s a Tetracentron’’ I blurted, having seen one a month earlier, but the Chinese form. This was 30m tall with large ovate-orbicular long slender tipped glossy thicker textured leaves on red petioles. The longer catkins of golden yellow seed were 20-25cm in length, the result of the yellow flowers born in summer, long enough not to be hidden by the foliage. Should form a small tree in gardens.Best grown in an acidic to neutral fertile drained soil, although lime tolerant. It is naturally a woodland plant, but flowers more profusely in sun. 1.5 m tall plants offered.
