Discover the charming Pterostyrax psilophyllus, also known as the Epaulette Tree or Smooth-leafed Silverbell. This striking deciduous tree, belonging to the Styracaceae family, grows up to 50 ft tall, boasting a trunk as thick as 18 inches in diameter. Its leaves alternate and are beautifully oblong-elliptic in shape, ranging from 4–15 cm long and 5–9 cm broad. A thick mat of hair covers the underside of the leaf, adding to its distinct, earthy appeal. As if that wasn't enough, this exotic species offers clusters of beautiful white flowers, each measuring 12–14 mm in length, draped on panicles 10–15 cm long for an ethereal display. The Epaulette Tree is an endemic species in central China, losing its habitat due to unrestrained habitat change. Its survival is now of considerable concern, making it a precious addition to any collection aimed at sustaining threatened species. Join us in celebrating and preserving the unique beauty of the Pterostyrax psilophyllus, a true treasure of Mother Nature's portfolio.
