Hardiness level Green
This hardy deciduous tree from central China is grown mainly for the stunning green and white striated bark. It can reach 4m in height with a broad head, also yellow flowers, winged seed clusters and good autumn colours.
Position in a sheltered spot out of strong sun and cold winds. Best grown in any well drained moist soil.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
