Is viridiglaucescens Flowering in Europe?

Post by David »

I have two groves of viridiglaucescens one flowered 2013 and appears to be nearly dead, and the other is flowering now. I was hoping to see some seedlings but none yet. I crossed the viridiglaucescens with a glauca yunzhu last year which was also flowering, and got some seeds.

I would hate to lose these plants. I love the color of the shoots, and the wood is strong and flexible.

I don't think it is. Viridiglaucescens has light colored shoots almost pink looking with purple spots.
