Description: Originating from one of my seed collections gathered on a very exposed ridge on the edge of a mountain forest overlooking the border into China in the very north of Vietnam in the autumn of 2011. Where it only grew into a small congested tree 3-4m tall, smothered in the elongated parallel-veined leaves 10cm long, which are reputed to emerge a brilliant coppery red (as have the young plants). With generous quantities of long bracty catkins hiding the long winged seed that we eagerly gathered. Best grown in good light to part shade, with shelter from freezing winds in a drained fertile soil with some moisture retention.
