Disanthus cercidifolius

Disanthus cercidifolius, a member of the hamamelidaceae family, is lighting up the garden with the spectacular colour of its heart shaped leaves.  A native of Japan and China it was introduced to the UK in about 1893.  It is a woodland plant, an acid soil lover and fairly hardy.  There are seven plants flourishing in the garden at High Beeches.
