A selected form of the fabled 'Handkerchief Tree' which flowers very young, even as a youngster in a pot and bears larger than average floral bracts. A specimen of only 2m tall has been recorded with up to about 100 inflorescences. A truly unique and exceptionally beautiful, hardy, medium sized tree for any reasonable soil, not too overly dry. Draped in May with a multitude of large white pendulous bracts, "Like huge butterflies hovering among the trees" (Wilson). Rounded fruit follow in autumn. For a soil that isn't prone to drought.
