The Chinese Parasol Tree is a delightful thing. I was given this young sapling and it has survived in a cold greenhouse
through last winter. Magnificent large leaves, it would probably be good if it was stooled, assuming it can tolerate
cool summers. I think it might be one of those things that only really prospers if it is hot in the summer.
It will be ok in the greenhouse for a couple of years yet.
