Idesia (Japanese Orange Cherry)

Japanese Orange Cherry is the only species in the monotypic genus Idesia and is native of humus rich soils in partially shaded to sunny spots in woods in S Japan and C and W China. It is a fully winter hardy, deciduous, medium-sized to tall tree with a round crown, light green, slightly pubescent heart shaped leaves, and some 30cm long pendulous racemes with fragrant yellowish-green flowers in spring followed by most ornamental bright orange-red berries in late summer and autumn. It is an adoptable species which is easily grown in any humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot.
Sow the fine seeds flat in any humus-rich, well drained soil, slightly cover seeds with soil and keep pots in a protected, sunny spot outside during winter. Transplant seedlings in late spring or autumn as soon as plants are strong enough.
