Polylepis australis

An exceptional small tree from N. Argentina; a member of the Rose family, closely related to Acaena, and with similar pinnate, sea-green foliage, but grows into a small tree eventually, with truly amazing overcooked filo-pastry bark, in shades of chestnut to golden-brown. Some leaves turn yellow in autumn with the rest remaining for the winter. Perfectly hardy in most areas of the UK and suited to most soils, even heavy clay.

Pot size: 2L
