Pot Size: 15 litre
Description: From the slopes of Fansipan in northern Vietnam, a small deciduous shrub with a strange habit in the wild, appearing to be an aerial-rooting climber, but starting life as an epiphyte. Eventually sending roots all the way down to the ground and growing its own terrestrial roots (a hemi-epiphyte). This was how we found this collection growing from the bough of a large tree at 20m. With 3-foliate pinnate rounded leaves and large terminal elongated panicles of black fruit. Cultivate in a drained leafy soil with the base in shade (terrestrially) growing into the sun onto a suitable support or free standing, protect from severe frost.
