Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: From one of our collections made with Dick Hayward in 2003 gathered from the Heping Logging Trail close to the East Coast of Taiwan. Where it was locally plentiful growing in dense shade on the forest edge, forming plants with a thicket of flexuous green stems to 1m tall. A tuberous rooted perennial with short running rhizomes, with branching stems 50-100cm. Leaves narrowly ovate with terminal white sometimes red tinted flowers, followed by blue-black orbicular berries. Best grown is a sheltered site in a moisture retentive but freely draining soil in light shade, protecting the rhizome from frost with a mulch.
