Description: Described as being a shrub or tree, although we have yet to encounter anything approaching tree-like proportions, where we have made many collections of this species. Only forming dark green stemmed shrubs to 3m tall, normally is fairly shaded conditions, rarely in the open. With parchment textured dark green oblong leaves with prominently impressed venation above and few conspicuously tipped marginal teeth. Bearing loose panicles of reddish-brown male flowers with long caudate tips to the petals. Meanwhile the female flowers are held in tight congested inflorescences, followed by long ellipsoid red fruit, early spring for us. Best grown in moisture retentive drained soil, shaded from strong sunlight and cold winds.
