Hankerchief Tree

The Handkerchief Tree or Davidia Vilmorana to the serious gardener. With it’s beautiful delicate hanging ‘petals’ giving the tree its common name, looking as if a white handkerchief has been picked up in the middle and allowed to hang loosely down. The trees have flowered infrequently in the British climate, but in recent years with warmer springs this tree has flowered and remained in flower for several weeks.
