There are 2 different Davidia.
Davidia involucrata and Davidia involucrata var vilmoriniana.
One has completely smooth leaves the other has hairy leaves.
Forget which way round it is.
We had a 15 year old specimen that flowered in the last 2 years.
I knew I recognised the leaf earlier just couldn't think why!
