Davidia involucrata

Handkerchief tree, Dove tree

Price: €36.95

This is a most unusual and sought-after tree. It is most noted for its large white bracts - hence the common name of Handkerchief tree - which appear in late spring. When these bracts are on the tree it makes a very imprssive sight. It must be noted that it can take at least ten years to flower! This tree requires a relatively sheltered position in the garden and prefers moist but well-drained soil in sun or light shade. It can grow to 15 m. Best grown as a specimen tree. A very choice plant for the Spring garden. 7.5 litre container. Plants are 4-5ft tall. Plants displayed on this website are not necessarily in stock in each of our shops. (A)
