Description: One of several species we encounter growing in and around the forests of Fansipan the highest mountain in northern Vietnam, where the winters are cold. This collection gathered by Dan Hinkley in the autumn of 2006 was from a large to medium sized evergreen shrub with narrowly ovate to linnear slightly undulating leaves to 10 cm long. With oblong green fruit which had split to reveal the orange aril covering the enclosed seed, these had succeeded the (yellow?) scented flowers. Easily grown with some shelter from freezing winds in sun or light shade.
