Hoheria sexstylosa ‘Snow White’ (Long Leaved Lacebark)

A beautiful evergreen large shrub or small tree from New Zealand. Fragrant white flowers in summer and autumn. Roughly pyramidal in shape it could reach 4 metres over a 20 year period. Clippable, white flowering and fluffy.

 

Sun to dappled shade, best in a post sheltered from north winds. Good on sand, loam or chalk, preferring moist but well drained soil. A Country Park Nursery creation, ex alumnus Paul Boosey now operates the business founded by his grandpa.

 

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.

Hardy in the Home Counties if sensibly sited (avoiding severe frost pockets, for example). Many Amber Labelled Plants are from cuttings from well-established plants that have survived many harsh winters in the South-East.

This is only meant as a guide. Please remember we're always on hand to give advice about plants and their frost hardiness.

Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
