Description: Considered to be an outstanding small evergreen shrub allied to magnolias and requiring similar conditions to rhododendrons, although more tolerant of lime. From seed I collected on Longzhoushan Sichuan China, off small pyramidically shaped shrubs to 2m tall with a dense habit bearing dull green 10cm elliptic leathery leaves with purple mid-ribs and many star-shaped seed capsules which had succeeded the pale-yellow cup-shaped flowers. Best grown cool in part-shade in an acidic drained soil.
