Description: Apparently a very rare species only known from one Chinese peak previous to our discovery of this evergreen species in 2007. Where we found it growing on the exposed ridge of Fansipu, considered to be the second highest to Fansipan in northern Vietnam. Here it only formed low congested shrubs to around a meter tall in that exposed site. Forming a wide colony with elliptic-lanceolate subleathery leaves with 8-15-spinose-serrate on each side while the yellow flowers are 2-6-fascicled borne in March-April, followed by ellipsoid dark fruit. Best grown in good light in a fertile drained soil.
