A small genus and a must for any collector for arboretum.
A small genus and a must for any collector for arboretum. Others list this as Tetradium daniellii but it is the same tree, caught up in a botanical debate to confuse everyone.
Native of China and Korea, it was introduced into the UK on 1905 and won the First Class Certificate in 1976.
Its compound leaves and panicles of small white flowers make this an attractive specimen tree that is excellent for shallow chalk soils.
Bright red fruits are borne on female trees in the autumn.
The flowers are characterised by lovely yellow anthers and are pleasingly fragrant.
Autumn colour is a pale yellow.
Mature height: 10-15m
