Photo of Daphniphyllum macropodum (daphniphyllum)

Daphniphyllum macropodum - It is a rounded understory broadleaf evergreen shrub or small tree with attractive, rhododendron-like foliage. It typically grows to 15-25’ tall in cultivation, but reportedly to as much as 45’ tall in the wild in its native habitat. Long-stalked, leathery, oblong to oblanceolate leaves (5-10” long by 1-3” wide) with showy purplish red petioles are arranged in closely-spaced spirals at the stem ends in a configuration somewhat resembling the leaves found on some rhododendrons. Leaves have cuneate bases and are glossy deep green above and a glaucous light green below. New growth leaves emerge flushed with pink. Non-showy apetalous flowers in axillary racemes bloom from the leaf axils in May-June on the growth from the prior year. Male flowers are purple-pink and female flowers are pale green. Pollenized female flowers give way to ellipsoidal blue-black drupes (to 1/3” long). Family: Daphniphyllaceae
