Xanthoceras sorbifolium

Xanthoceras sorbifolium
A rare and highly sought-after small tree or medium sized shrub from Central Asia. As the name implies it has pinnate (Sorbus-like) leaves and in spring it produces handsome clusters of good sized white flowers, turning pink with age. Easy and hardy in a sunny well-drained spot and an excellent choice for poor chalky soils. The photo is the first flowering on a four year old seedling. The plants on offer are a year younger but big enough to plant out in the garden.
1L pots ~ £8 (very few)
