3 in stock



An attractive tree now becoming known in horticulture for its easy cultivation, attractive foliage and the long pendant inflorescences.

It has densely hairy young growth, with the branchlets covered in a rust-coloured pubescence.
The leaves are 20-30 cm long and have 10-16 serrated leaflets. Similar to the fruit, the inflorescence is also quite striking.
Long, drooping panicles hang from the tree, with each peduncle (stem) bearing numerous sessile flowers.
These flowers have a silky calyx that form a whorl around the 2.5mm long pink petals.

Once pollinated, the flowers give way to the unusual fruit shown today. Like the flowers, the fruit are sessile.
Each pinkish-brown or yellow-orange fruit has 3-6 grooves and is covered in soft hairs.
