Lacebark

 

(Lagetta lintearia), a low tree of the family Thymelaeaceae. It grows in the West Indies. The leaves are alternate and elongated or rounded. The flowers, which are in terminal racemes, are four-parted. The fruit is dry and enclosed in the persistent base of the calyx-tube. The delicate bast bundles of the lacebark, freed of surrounding soft tissues and dried, are used as a lacy fabric in the manufacture of collars, hats, and other products.

Hoherias are perfect for a small garden, but also look good in a big border.
In the main, hoherias are not very hardy, but Hoheria lyallii, being deciduous, is the hardiest of the clan.
Hoherias like a deep, rich soil and do equally well in sun or shade, but it is important not to overfeed, because this encourages soft growth that is susceptible to frost.
Hoherias usually need a warm spot, but mine are in quite exposed places and have sailed through several winters.
