Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Description: A most unusual medium sized shrub or small tree in the wild to 4m, which is an unlikely decorative woody member of the nettle family (Urticaceae). The semi-evergreen slender lance-shaped foliage to 23cm long may fool people even though the texture is rough, but the orange mulberry-like fruit held in dense clusters along the stems will be guaranteed to fox anyone. Sue's collection from a remote area of northern Vietnam next to the Chinese border, collected in 2006. Easily grown in most types of fertile drained soils, best grown in sun or light shade, with some protection from freezing winds.
