Hi,

Just wondering has anybody got any experience growing this tree.

I got some seeds online a couple of weeks ago and sowed them on 20th feb, some Small seedlings have just appeared in the last few days,

Do they really grow as fast as reported, even in the west of Ireland

What should I do next, keep them in pots for a while until hardy?

would they grow in boggy ground

Thanks

Tommy

yes its fast growing and can be invasive, I dont know about the west of Ireland but there are a couple around Dublin. I think they look lovely in bloom and if you pollard them you get massive leaves. It is native to China and in America it is a bit of a nuisance as it displaces native trees dont know if it is on invasive list for Ireland.
yes afraid so, its on the Amber list, its in alphabetical order scroll down to P though your variety is not mentioned its tomentosa but they are related so be careful what you wish for.

Cheers Greengage.
I'm half sure I remember reading that P. Elongata wasn't as invasive as P. Tomentosa. I'll have a look into it and see if I can find the info again.
