Post Orepanax liebmanii
I bought this Oreopanax from Mark Fillan 3 years ago its a nice slow grower helping maintain its probable lifetime pot culture.
I would be interested to hear of anyone trying it outside?

It flowers each year but no seeds this making me think it needs a female partner

Nice healthy looking plant, Kev. I love those glossy new leaves.

I can't offer any comments at all, but I've just typed 'Orepanax liebmanii' into Google. The only references I get are to your plant - a sure sign indeed that something is rare!

Hi Kev
Nice photos!
You are right that the Oreopanax is a male clone; only managed to germinate 1 seed.
Definitely a good "pot plant" as the original is still in a pot after 12 years.
As for hardiness, I left some pots unheated last winter that would of experienced -5oC but in a sheltered position.
There appears some confusion about Oreopanax liebmannii and O. capitatus with some comments suggesting they are the same species.
Certainly in the Northern half of Mexico they are very distinct, O. liebmannii most often seen as an epiphyte.
