Tetrapanax 'Rex' also known as T.Rex is the most amazing plant. We have known it to grow 6 feet in one season and produce the most beautiful, extrodinary leaves up to a metre across! Found high up in Vietnam they have proved to be massively root hardy. They generally lose their leaves in the winter in this country but come the spring the growth rate is fast. The most effective plant for creating a jungle like garden, especially when planted with other 'jungle-like' plants such as Bamboo, Fargesia, Fatsia, Tree Ferns and other interesting foliage types that like a simlar semi-shaded spot in the garden.
