Emmenopterys henryi in Europe

The first introduction to Europe was 1907 to England by Ernest Wilson.[1][2] They are noted for their rare flowering. The first time that Emmenopterys henryi flowered in mainland Europe was 1971 in the arboretum of Villa Taranto on Lago Maggiore.[1][2] A specimen in Cambridge flowered in 2012, after 30 years, only the fifth flowering in the UK.[3] In 2013, a tree flowered for the fourth time in the Arboretum Kalmthout in Belgium. This was unexpected, since the flowers only appeared in September, which is quite late.[4]
