A small evergreen tree from Pakistan through to South West China. Those I have seen in gardens have been
moderate sized shrubs.
This one has spent a year or two in the greenhouse building up strength and has then been planted at the
edge of the shade garden, to replace the Alder trees that currently protect it. It seems to be growing
at a rate of about 5cm per year, so in 100 years I will be able to remove the Alders.
That is something to look forward to then!
