Description:
From a plant given to us by Dan Hinkley from cultivation in the USA. A vigorous woody-stemmed hardy evergreen twining climber, with Schefflera-like leaves composed of up to nine slender leathery dark green glossy leaflets. Bearing in spring separate male (slender, purple green tinged) & female (plump, pale green) fragrant flowers, which when pollinated by a second clone produces sausage-shaped pinkie-purple edible fruit, which are so popular in the Far East. Best grown in a sheltered site out of cold winds, although it is proving remarkably resilient on the exposed east facing front of our house. Closely related to and similar in habit to Stauntonia.
