Pot Size: 5 litre
Description: A much confused variable although distinct small to medium sized semi-evergreen shrub. The seed of which this collection represents my 2007 collection from Dasyueshan in the north-west of Taiwan at 2100 m. Where they possessed larger than the normal sized oblong-lanceolate leaves to 20 × 5 cm with a grey cast and conspicuously impressed venation above. Flowering in terminal compound cymes, of bright red buds opening to tubular white flowers, which in turn give way to bright red flattened fruit which mature black. Best cultivated in part shade (too few flowers in full shade) in not too exposed a spot, in a humus rich fertile soil that retains moisture.
