NotesAlso called the Ghost Tree and the Dove Tree because of the beautiful white bracts around the flowers that hang down in late spring.  Introduced to the UK by Veitch's plant hunter E.H. 'Chinese' Wilson.  He had heard about a glorious example of the tree and travelled for two weeks into a remote region of China only to find that the tree had been chopped down.  He did find one eventually and collected seeds.  More info here.info
