TETRAPANAX PAPYRIFER REX

New product

READY EARLY SUMMER. The ultimate in architectural plants, with huge palmate leaves with claw-like lobes. Quite extraordinary. White flowers in the autumn, too. By nature a woodlander, so doesn't want to be in too exposed a position. We find it very hardy down in the south, but it will regrow from the base if cut down by hard frosts. Any well drained soil. 6 feet plus. 2 litre pot. AVAILABLE IN 8L POTS & 9cm POTS - ENQUIRE IF INTERESTED IN THESE SIZES.

The influence of BBC Gardeners' World cannot be underestimated. As soon as this plant had featured on the programme, interest in it suddenly surged. We find this happens quite a lot with the more uncommon species.

We have been trying these in mid-sized patio pots and find they make quite a striking but manageable specimen treated in this way.

Tetrapanax Papyrifer Rex is a fairly hardy large shrub with huge claw like lobed leaves and white flowers in autumn suitable for sun or semi-shade.

  • Height 6 feet +
  • Aspect Sheltered sunny spot
  • Soil type Any well drained soil
  • Packing weight 1.5 kg
