Eucryphia x nymansensis 'Mt. Usher'. Chile

Eight trees planted in Frost Amphitheater in February 2003. The Eucryphias are spindly -- three are on the north side, just west of the east bathroom. One is at the corner of the west access road and the top of the amphitheater road. Three are halfway down the west border, just below a bump-out. They all have squirrel damage and are to be caged to protect them. Cross between E. cordifolia and E. glutinosa, both native to Chile. Lvs both simple and pinnately 3-foliolate.

Additions/Revisions: Eucryphia x nymansensis -- one of the Frost specimens, namely the one at the intersection of the west access road and the top of the amphitheater road, has died. There are 4 (not 3) halfway down the west side, just below the bumpout. Total of 7 left. All have been caged for squirrel protection. x nymansensis is a garden hybrid produced in Sussex from Chilean parents E. cordifolia and E glutinosa. (Ingrid Graeve, 3/22/04). All trees removed as of February 2003; lack of irrigation.
