Pot Size: 2 litre
Description: I have been on the lookout for this form for quite some time (being the National Collection holder). Luckily Michael Wickenden et al found this reputedly red fruiting form on his Upper Dulong River expedition to north-western Yunnan, China in 2008. A form of this deciduous sub-shrub which eventually builds up a woody base, with red arching stems bearing opposite pairs of pinnately arranged ovate leaves. With terminal cylindrical spikes of inconspicuous red-tipped flowers, which are soon followed by seed-encasing succulent lobed translucent orange-amber flower-like fruit rather than a bright red, in summer through autumn. Easily grown in any type of well drained soil with a bit of moisture retention in good light.
