In its first year a Powton Sapphire Dragon seedling can exceed three metres. In its second year, five metres with the appearance of its first bloom. In its third year it becomes a substantial shade tree with a final height of eight metres. A three year old Powton® Sapphire Dragon can have up to 30 racemes, each one of them a metre long and half a metre wide, bearing 300 frilly orchid-like flowers that will perfume a garden with its delicate fragrance. There’s more: the Powton® is deciduous. This means that it drops its leaves during the winter allowing sunlight into your garden when it needs it the most. The Powton® Sapphire Dragon refoliates in the warmer months with enormous lush and exotic leaves that create luxuriant cool summer shade, but that’s just part of the story.
