Description: It is not often that a new genus is introduced to horticulture before it is formally described, but such is the case with this taxa. Discovered by Bleddyn and Sue in a remote hillside forest in the very north of Vietnam in 2006. Where it was re-generating after being cut back to accommodate a crop of black cardamom, although sizeable trees were also found on our subsequent expedition in 2007. It was obviously a member of the Hamamelis family, by its pink-red flowers consisting of narrow ribbon-like petals, carried in late spring for us so far. Found growing in moist well drained soil in good light. Foliage parchment-like heart-shaped semi-evergreen in our climate emerging a strong purple in colour, slowly fading to a pale green.
