Simply Beautiful 8 – Tetrapanax leaves

Tetrapanax papyfera Rex is a wonderful albeit rather tender foliage plant with large exotic looking leaves. In winter the leaves darken before falling and look simply beautiful.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
