Pot Size: 4 litre
Description: A most unlikely looking species to the uninitiated which flourishes in our garden forming an evergreen shrub 2m tall by 3m wide, similar to those we have seen in the wild, although reported to be capable of growing to a small tree. Bearing leathery oblong dark green glossy leaves to 22cm long, resembling a Daphniphyllum. With large terminal and axillary rounded panicles of small scented yellow flowers in May-June followed by globose capsules which split open to reveal the red fruit. A seed collection from The South Cross Highway from the forest edge near Kuanshan on the eastern side of Taiwan, at 2050m during my 2007 expedition with Finlay Colley. Full sun and shelter from icy winds in a well drained soil.
