France (Zone 8a) wrote:

This is a handsome tree, with very fragrant flowers and striking silver-backed leaves. However, although it is free from aphids (and therefore doesn't have problems with dripping honeydew), it apparently has flowers that are toxic to bees according to the Hillier Gardener's Guide to Shrubs and Trees.

Positive palmbob On Jul 8, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Large Asian/European tree (50-70') with dark green leaves that have a striking fuzzy silvery underside. Everywhere on the internet I find this tree is only listed up to zone 7, yet here in Los Angeles is doing fine in zones 9b and 10a.
