Description: An exceptionally rare species in cultivation although the name has/is been used for V. awabuki. From seed collected for us by The Taiwan Museum of Natural Science, from a small tree with thick almost fleshy-textured ovate orbicular entire leaves. Bearing terminal pyramidical panicles of creamy-yellow highly fragrant flowers resulting in plump elliptic reddish fruit maturing black, with persistent calyx. Unlike its impersonators, the flowers are borne continuously in the wild. After initially not expecting any hardiness from this species we have been pleasantly surprised that it has survived –11C here . Best in full sun in a free draining soil.
