Description: I was puzzled along with our host botanist Chien-Fan by the identity of this species, since it is not listed as occurring in Taiwan. This old acquaintance we normally see in Japan growing in very exposed locations, particularly in coastal areas, where they are often encountered on dry exposed cliffs. Only forming a medium sized to small shrub with thick leathery oblong leaves, which emerge and retain a bronze colour for months. Flowers are born in the upper leaf axils in May followed on female plants with dark purple bloomy fruit. Best grown in a free draining soil in full sun to part shade sheltered from freezing winds. These are still to root through until spring of 2016, hence not suitable for planting outside until then.
