Tetracentron sinense v. himalense - WJC13818

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
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.
