Description: A species we collected in the forests on Fansipan the highest mountain in northern Vietnam in 2007. Where it formed a small tree 7-8m tall, well branched with a broad outline, young branches red. Clothed in large oblong-elliptic acuminate thick textured leaves 20-25 x 6.5-9cm, dark green above with prominent veins impressed, glaucous white below. Held on long red petioles 3.5-5cm long, the colour extending along the mid rib of the leaves. Fruitescences short, peduncles 6cm, pedicells.7-2cm, fruit ellipsoid 1.5 x 1.2cm dark with recurved styles (no calyx). A stunning tree which we were unable to use the current epithet, until we proved its existence in The Himalayas during our 2013 expedition. Best grown in some shelter from cold winds mixed with large shrubs (edge of woodland).
