Emmenopterys henryi

A highly desirable and rarely seen perfectly hardy small tree with new foliage reddy-bronze, maturing green, then sometimes with purple autumn colour, all on tiered branching. Rare to flower but spectacular when it does, these are responding favourably to a warming climate, with a mass flowering of old British trees in late summer 2018. Described by Wilson as 'one of the most strikingly beautiful trees of the Chinese forests', the scented white flowers have somewhat the quality of Schizophragma. Any good ordinary soil. I have grown one here in Frampton for over 20 years.

Pot size: 5L
