Description: A distinct species with a confused identity, which ultimately may be a new species. Which forms a bushy shrub or small slender evergreen tree in the wild, with emerging shoots which are bronzy-red, maturing to dark green broadly elliptical round-ended leaves, glaucous-white below held on angled reddened stems (petioles). Bearing small male or female flowers, in late spring from the new leaf axils, later evolving to bloomy fruit on female plants. One of the last collections I gathered with Peter Wharton from the forest of Ban Khoang, northern Vietnam in 2007. Best grown in a sheltered position, in part shade with some overhead protection from late frosts in a moisture retentive drained soil.
