The plant is attributed to Charles Wilford a plant collector for Kew c 1857- 1861 and a possible ancestor. A plant is still growing at the Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plains from seed collected in 1905 and they have other plants growing from various modern expeditions and acquisitions. It is also growing in Canada at the University of British Columbia David Lam Garden and is for sale in Wales UK from Crug Farm nurseries
