Plant details

Hardly a shrub, and more like a column-shaped tree when it is happy. All Eucryphias are vigorous ornamental shrubs that enjoy moist soil, preferably not alkaline, and need shelter from cold winds. This applies especially to evergreen varieties such as 'Nymansay', which can lose some of its leaves in a cold position and suffer some die back, although plants recover in spring. The flowers are 5cm (2in) or more across, glowing white with a prominent central boss of yellow stamens. A plant that needs shade at the roots and its head in the sun. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
