An exquisite medium-sized evergreen shrub with slightly fragrant white flowers. Eucryphias are small to medium sized evergreen shrubs and small trees native to moist woodlands in Chile and South Australia. They grow well in many parts of Ireland, and seeing them in bloom in gardens such as Mount Usher in Ashford, Co Wicklow, is a real treat.They have cup or saucer-shaped flowers in summer and autumn, and prefer well-drained, moist acidic soil, shaded roots but upper parts in the sun. They require some shelter from drying winds, and are ideal for a woodland garden. 'Penwith' is an upright variety with wavy-edged leaves. 7-8ft tall trees. Only available in our Dunboyne shop. Although generally in stock, they may be sold out at the time of your visit.
