A small evergreen shrub in everyone's favorite family, the Pentaphylacaceae. This was collected in Taiwan by Mark Weathington of the famed Raulston Arboretum and is a rarity in cultivation. Best suited for mild gardens, this will have very small white flowers along the stems under the leaves followed by small black fruit. Best planted in a raised position to better view the flowers.
Very attractive selection with gray-centered evergreen foliage. This used to be in the Camellia family Theaceae but has been reclassified into the Pentaphylacaceae and we are resting much easier for the knowing. Sad we missed the big party. Better in milder gardens but so worth trying. Small white flowers on the underside of the branchlets.
Luscious variegated selection out of Japan of this small evergreen shrub. The leaves are heavily frothed and patterned in creamy whites which can take on some pink depending on the season and exposure. No two leaves are alike on this new wave plant canvas. Small white flowers under the branches.
