Hi Ian, some great comments from our social media:

"Davidia involucrata the Handerchief Tree"
"Davidia involucrata - Handkerchief tree or Dove tree"
"A hankerchief tree."
"Handkerchief Tree...a specimen tree! Lucky you to see it in bloom...Aka -'Davidia involucrata, the dove-tree, handkerchief tree, pocket handkerchief tree, or ghost tree, is a medium-sized deciduous tree in the family Nyssaceae. dogwood family, Cornaceae'"

Hope that helps?

Hi Katy, thank you for your response. I have attached some photo's that may be of help. See what you think as I have no clues as to why the tree would suddenly do this.

Many thanks,
Chris

Message from Katy Elton

In forum: Davidia involucrata

Hi Chris,

Very difficult to say without seeing it - is there any chance you could upload some photographs? It may be that it's suffered at the hands of the extremely long and cold winter we've just had, or it may have become diseased. If you're not able to upload photos you could try sending a sample to the RHS if you're a member. They have an identification service for damaged and diseased plants.

Hope this helps and look forward to hopefully seeing some photographs to enable us to know more about the problem. Sorry we couldn't say any more at this stage!

Thanks
Katy

Davidia involucrata (hankerchief tree)

Question from Chris Churchman

In forum: Davidia involucrata

I have a mature Davidia involucrata in my garden, standing some 25 - 30 feet tall. The flowers came out late April but already have gonr from a lovely white to a yellow colour and srated to crumple up and the leaves have gone a very dark green/brown colour and have also dried up and gone brittle. It looks as though it's dying, but why? Any one out there have any ideas why it would suddenly do this?

Tree Advice

Question from Sheron Deards

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

Until recently a 40 year old beech hedge marked the boundary between my garden and my neighbours. Some of the plants were in my neighbours' garden and some in ours. Unfortunately, my neighbour has chopped all of his down, along with several conifers. This means I've lost the backdrop to many plants and gained a gap of around 12 ft near the house and another of around 10 ft about 20 metres away. Of course, I could replace the wire link fence with a 6 ft wooden one to retain privacy, but I would rather use this as a planting opportunity and do not wish to reinstate hedge. I would like to plant a tree in each gap with possibly shrubs and perennials underneath. I realise the trees will cast shade onto the garden but I feel the added interest will make up for it. Although I know quite a bit about plants I'm always scared to make a decision when it comes to trees. Will they get too big or wide for my long, narrow garden? Will they cast too much shade? For the 12 ft gap near the house, where the remaining beech hedge is purple, I'm considering Liquidambar styraciflua or Pyrus calleryana "chanticlear". I also want to transplant an Abelia grandiflora into the space. Further down the garden, between some lilac trees and the green beech hedge I'm considering something that grows a little broader, possibly Cornus kousa "Satomi" or similar, although I'm having trouble finding a tree (rather than a shrub) tall enough. Another option might be the autumn flowering cherry. I decided against Davidia involucrata as I think it will grow too wide. The most worrying issue is that I had just been accepted under the National Garden Scheme to open next year for charity and now have 2 massive holes to fill! I welcome your thoughts.

Small shrub

Message from David Sewell

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

Well if it's scented Viburnums you want then carlesii is my runaway favourite!! However it's not evergreen...
Of course the name is purely coincidental. Alhough it might start to sound a bit dodgy if I tell you that my favourite tree is Davidia involucrata...(honest!)
