The Dove-tree is a tree native to southwestern China with very vigorous deciduous foliage, leaves up to 14 cm long form large hearts. The originality of this species lies however in its flowering which covers in May to June the whole of the tree, small flowers appear and surrounded by large white bracts. These are actually modified leaves that surround the base of the flower and form what is called an involucre. You will see at the time of blooming two large sheets of immaculate white surrounding each flower of the tree, the rendering is striking.

The Davidia involucrata can reach 20 meters high and 10 meters wide, it has a rounded crown and can be driven both in stem and in clumps. Adapted to all types of soil, the tree with tissues is very resistant to the various diseases and harmful insects to which it could be exposed, it also supports temperatures up to -25 °C.

Connoisseur gardeners or collectors all dream of having the Davidia Involucrata in their own garden. If you have room, do not hesitate to plant it in your own home, its pristine white spring bloom will dazzle you every year and bring a real plus to your garden.
