Eucryphia x hillieri 'Winton'


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist

A hybrid between E. moorei and E. lucida that grew from a chance cross at Hillier's nursery, the original plant was cloned and distributed under the name 'Winton' and we preserve that name here to differentiate it from any further x hillieri selections. Retains the glossy narrow semi-evergreen foliage of its parents with pure white flowers beloved by bees and pollinators. Has shown excellent hardiness, anecdotally surviving a below 10F winter freshly planted in a nearby garden. A child which may well outexcel its parents.
