The Hong Kong rose is nowadays rarely seen in nature, but it is a beautiful hardy species and has its origins in China. The elegant pink flowers resemble the flowers of a rose or Rhodondendron, but aren’t in the same family. The flowers are pollinated by birds. In nature the Hong Kong rose grows into a tree of maximum 30 meters, but usually stays smaller. The tree is green during the winter, is suitable for pruning, and is a very special acquisition for the garden.
