Davidia involucrata

"Handkerchief Tree/ Dove Tree"


Tree Information

The Davida involucrata is a tree of medium size. An unusual tree which is most conspicuous in May when draped with its large, white bracts. Leaves are large and similar to a lime tree, but it is the white bracts that hang down amongst the leaves which are so impressive. It is a sight which people will make a special journey to see. Although only usually seen in large gardens and good parks, there is no reason why this tree should not be planted more widely. A fairly sheltered site is best, any reasonable soil. This tree has historically been difficult to propagate. However, some progress has now been made and it is more readily available.
