Schima aff. argentea NJM 13.042

A collection from Manipur, NE India, which appears to fit this species but probably isn't. Schima taxonomy is a widely accepted complete mess! Evergreen leathery foliage, tapered at both ends and glaucous below. The golden centred fragrant white flowers are like small camellia's and are produced in late summer and early autumn. Schima argentea itself is proven hardy to at least -18c in the UK, but this clone is unproven. Makes a large upright shrub.

Pot size: 2L
