Phaleria clerodendron "Scented Daphne" Organic Well-Established Plant

Phaleria clerodendron

These are well-established and organically grown. We offer them at 7-12" size.

P. clerodendron is in the Thymelaeaceae family and hails from the rain forests of Queensland, Australia.  It is a shrub to small tree from 10 to 20 feet tall with a spread about half as wide.  The plant bears large (16")dark green, glossy leaves.  Throughout the year the plants are literally loaded down with clusters of highly fragrant, trumpet-shaped, white flowers.  The flowers are borne from the trunk and stems in large masses.  These blooms are intensely fragrant with a very pleasingly sweet smell with a hint of pineapple.  The scent carries for great distances and is positively intoxicating!  The flowers are followed by highly ornamental, bright red berries hence the common name "Rosy Apple".  Being a rain forest understory plant this species is very tolerant of shade.  It is amenable to container culture and can even be grown as a houseplant successfully.
