Eucryphia 'Leatherwood Cream'

DESCRIPTION: A shrub of some horticultural merit, the cream edging of its leaves giving added beauty to this plant which is a member of an inherently attractive group. The leaves appear to be intermediate between those of E. lucida and E. milliganii, being of a size found more often in the former but with the indentation of the leaf apex usually found in the latter.

DIAGNOSIS:Differs from Eucryphia lucida(Labill.) Baill. in the consistently retuse apex of its leaves and in its greenish-yellow and marginal or edged leaf variation (margin: ca. 25% yellow group R.H.S. 4D, inner portion of variegation: green group R.H.S.137C).

Differs from E. milliganii Hook.f. in its slightly longer (ca. 2.5cm) and oblong elliptical leaves and the marginal leaf variegation as above.

Morphologically this cultivar essentially agrees with CBG 26450 (filed under E. lucida) so far as morphology of the uppermost stems and leaves are concerned, excepting for the characteristics given above.
