Description

Information Only - A very rare tree, Davidia involucrata 'Lady Sunshine' has stunning variegated leaves, with an eye-catching wide golden-cream margin. With the heavily variegated leaves, this selection seems to be slower growing than a classic Davidia and is best treated as a large shrub in the short term, eventually growing into a small tree.

Davidia involucrata 'Lady Sunshine' is a choice plant, ideal for a position in light, dappled shade to avoid potential leaf scorch in hot summer weather.
