Toona sinensis (Syn. Cedrela sinensis) - Chinese Mahogany / Red Toon

 

An extremely rare and strikingly beautiful specimen tree native to eastern and south-eastern Asia - eventually growing to a height of around 40 feet (12 m) and a spread of 20 ft (6m)

 

The emerging leaves are bright pink, almost fluorescent, during spring (darker pink/red in younger trees) which gradually turn a peacefully light green colour throughout the seasons

 

The deciduous leaves are made up of pinnate, oval-lance-shaped, papery leaflets

 

The trees will eventually form attractive peeling bark and take a multi-stemmed form.  Any shoots forming at the base of the trees can be removed as desired

 

Flowers are borne during the summer and are a pinkish-white

 

Fully hardy to -15ºC (5ºF).  Keep soil on the drier side during frosts and protect very young plants

 

Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack
