Description

A handsome evergreen shrub native to parts of Japan, Korea and China, Daphniphyllum macropodum has large Rhododendron-like, glossy, dark green leaves. The fresh leaves in spring are much more pale green in colour than the mature leaves which gives an interesting contrast.

Purplish male flowers and green female flowers appear on separate plants in late spring once established with females bearing heavily bloomed black berries in autumn.

Daphniphyllum macropodum is most suitable for a sheltered position in sun or partial shade.

Supplied Size: 4L / 5L pots (approx 4 years old, 60 - 80 cm tall)


  • Position: Full sun, light dappled shade or partial shade.
  • Soil: Most moist but well drained soil.
  • Hardiness: Reasonably hardy. Daphniphyllum macropodum will take temperatures down to -10oC (with some damage) and so needs a sheltered position and possibly winter protection in cold, inland areas.
  • Flowering Period:  April - May
  • Flower Colour: Purple - green
  • Rate of Growth: Slow to moderate.
  • Habit: Daphniphyllum macropodum gradually grows to be a large rounded shrub or eventually in many years, a very small rounded shrub-like tree..
    • Height: up to 5 - 6 m (16 - 20 ft)
    • Spread: 5 - 6 m (16 - 20 ft)
  • Notes: Daphniphyllum macropodum will require protection to survive periods of severe cold in the UK, particularly in inland areas and as such it is not covered by our normal one year guarentee.
