Carrierea calycina PW 84

This great rarity from Sichuan, China is rarely available commercially, though is perfectly growable and flowered well in my garden here years ago. A vigorous hardy deciduous tree, eventually of medium size though perhaps only to small tree size in many gardens, with handsome dark-green foliage on red petioles and attractive, creamy-white, fruit-scented lantern-like flowers in early summer. Garden visitors here often asked me what the 'evergreen tree' was! Related to Idesia and Poliothyrsis and now placed in the willow family.

Pot size: 2L
