Slender erect habbit with elegantly drooping side branches cloaked in small curved leathery leaves of deep green, varying in level of bright creamy variegation from random streaks & splashes to entire leaves of cream. While slow growing, this is a very beautiful distinctive clone, gaining popularity as a dense accent in a collection of container plants, especially in the cool (that is, for Camellias or Cymbidiums) hobby greenhouse or conservatory. Left to its own devices, this "Weeping Variegated English Box" achieves an upright fountain shape, reaching a full seven feet in height in a mere twentyfive year period.
|Cultural Code||HT CGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
