Pot Size: 10 litre
Description: A close relative of Euscaphis one of our unexpectedly popular recent introductions. Reputed to form a tree in the wild, but very much a shrub at 4m tall, is what we collected from with oblong thick-textured finely serrated simple opposite leaves to 25cm long (in my notes). Easily mistaken for a Viburnum in the circumstance we found it in, only revealing its true identity with more maturity when the resulting foliage became trifoliate on maturity. Although the green turning orange terminal panicles of globose fruit had given us more than a hint. From one of our collections gathered on Yangminshan in the very north of Taiwan at 850m in 2007. Best grown in a warm sheltered position in fertile drained soil with some moisture retention. Hardiness not tested.
