Firmiana simplex

'Chinese Parasol Tree'. Thought to be tender, this fabulously tropical looking tree has grown outside at Kew for years, and in my garden it's BONE hardy - even thru Dec' 2010! Makes a medium sized deciduous tree with outsized maple-like leaves on very stout, green shoots: the bark staying green to the ground for years. Likes warmth in summer.
