Sycoparotia semidecidua 'Variegata'


Sycoparotia semidecidua 'Variegata'

Family:  Hamamelidaceae
Zone: 6 - 9
Natural Range:  Hybrid;  Sycopsis sinensis x Parrotia persica
Soil:  Moist, humus rich, well drained
Light: Sun, part sun
Height: 5' - 10'
Bloom Time:  February to March

Attributes:  Semi-evergreen.  Growth resembling Parrotia.  This form has thick, leathery leaves with deep green circled with light green.  Good autumn color, ranging from yellow to orange.  Red frilly flowers.

Notes:  Parrotia-like structure and with showy red flowers when little else is blooming.  I find that paring this rare find with Sarcococca near the main entry is a good way to feel good during the doldrums of winter.
