Description: Finally we have germination of this long sought after species, after collecting the purple fruit borne in huge quantities many times. From a joint seed collection made with the Taiwan Museum of Natural Science, based in Taichung, gathered near Leishan at 1,900 m in 2015. Where it formed a deciduous shrub to 2 m tall, bearing narrowly elliptic leaves to 18 cm long with long acuminate tips, covered in stellate hairs, held on slender branchlets. With conspicuously broad axillary cymes of purple orbicular fruit born in late summer-autumn, long after leaf fall, affording an unusual display. Best given a site out of freezing winds in a sunny well drained situation.
