MICHELIA STARBRIGHT STARBRIGHT MICHELIA In New Zealand

MICHELIA STARBRIGHT - STARBRIGHT MICHELIA

A new and exciting cultivar, Starbright takes on a lot of the characteristics of Michelia Gracipies but on a larger scale. Starbright has large oval deep green leaves and an almost horizontal branching structure. A straight central leader give the tree very good form, making it a great option as a medium sized specimen tree or when formed into a hedge. Mid to late winter sees a stunning display of bright white star shaped flowers. This is a relatively new tree.
