Description: Originating from a collection that Ben Kettle and I found in the cool mountain area Séo Mí Tý of northern Vietnam part of the Hoàng Liên Son mountains in the autumn of 2007. Where they formed small evergreen trees, probably semi-evergreen in our climate, with 2-3m trunk with few sturdy branches. Bearing large pinnate leaves a glossy fresh pale green, on deep red petioles as were the rachis and leaflet stalks. The leaves composed of 5-9 leaflets. With axillary infructescences of large red capsules enclosing the seed in a pail aril. Best grown in a well drained fertile soil in full sun, protected from freezing winds.
