Eucryphia x nymansensis 'Nymansay'

Nyman's Hybrid Eucryphia 'Nymansay', Eucryphia 'Nymansay'


Stately, Eucryphia x nymansensis 'Nymansay' is a fast growing, broadly columnar evergreen tree with large, simple and trifoliate, strongly toothed, glossy green leaves year round. In late summer and fall, abundant ravishing clusters of large, cup-shaped, honey-scented white flowers, 3 in. across (7 cm), with prominent bosses of yellow stamens cover the tree. They stand out against the dark, glossy-green leaves. Nymansay is a naturally occurring hybrid between two Chilean species, E. glutinosa and E. cordifolia. Beautiful through the seasons, this gorgeous flowering evergreen tree is one of the great glories of the garden in late summer. Probably the most popular of the eucryphias, it is often seen in woodland gardens, where other trees shelter this beauty from cold winds.

  • Grows up to 20-50 ft. tall (6-15 m) and 6-12 ft. wide (2-4 m).
