Likely the first introduction of this gorgeous evergreen broadleaf tree from Vietnam.  The small yellowish flowers are held in terminal panicles, and not a big show.  What is astounding every single day is the exfoliating bark which reveals sensuously smooth mocha skin, soft as the supple inner thigh of your vacation Island lover.  We've come to terms that at this point in our lives, this tree is as close as we are going to get to that fantasy.  No cultivation experience other than it has had frosts to 25F with no damage.  Hopefully this will be zone 8 hardy like Huodendron tibeticum.  Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy receives 50% of the sales of this plant.  A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering
