In its natural habitat, this unusual tree is found growing in dense forests and shrubby thickets from the Eastern Himalayas to Burma. It has very large, grey leaves with white undersides. These create a very handsome foliage effect as they flash their white underside in even the lightest of breezes, especially in spring. It has white flowers in late spring that are followed by red/brown fruit in autumn.

This is a striking tree suitable for most gardens or woodland areas.
