Neolitsea sericea - CWJ12814

Pot Size: 20 litre
Price: £75.00
A species in the laurel family forming a small upright evergreen tree 4-5m tall, with dark green glossy bold orbicular-elliptic leaves with 3 pronounced veins, which can be a spectacular silky (sericea) fawn-brown on emergence. Meanwhile the ellipsoid fruit were a bright red in conspicuous axillary clusters, resulting from the fragrant yellow flowers borne March to April. From one of my seed collections gathered on Mt. Seburiyama near Fukuoka Japan in the autumn of 2010 with Finlay Colley. Best grown is some shelter from the coldest winds in full sun and a moisture retentive soil with good drainage. Protect from severe frosts while young.
