Daphniphyllum paxianum YuGu 073


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Young plants of this extremely rare species which we speculate will have only light frost tolerance so perhaps good for zones 9-10. Evergreen bold leaves bringing to mind an unholy union between a laurel and a rhododendron. Insignificant flowers at a relatively young age. A number of novel alkaloids have been isolated from this species if this makes up in any way for the lack of showy flowers. A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering
