Plant of the month, September 2023

As August unfolds, explore a remarkable tree in Skilton Bay.

Plant of the month for August is Schima wallichii var khasiana

One of our champion trees here. It forms an impressive back drop and focal point in Skilton bay. A large evergreen tree with lush dark green almost tropical looking foliage. 

It should be ground in more gardens purely as a foliage plant. A member of the Theaceae family it bears single white camellia like flowers well into early winter. Worth planting if you have room.
