Description: Originally identified as S. petelotii. Probably our most dramatic hardy introduction of this genus that we will ever make. A spectacular species which we discovered in the Fan Xi Pan area of northern Vietnam, where this most architectural of the species can reach 7 meters tall with large paddle-shaped leaflets combining to form one meter wide leaves on slender purple petioles (leaf stem). You may think that would be enough, but on emerging the entire new growth is smothered in a ginger indumentum. Best grown out of strong winds in a warm site has taken -11C unprotected for us.
