Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Description: Our most popular species due to the retention of its alternate thick-textured slender foliage in milder climates like our own. Held on strikingly bright purple arching stems which are even brighter when the red fruit are still attached as they can be for months on this species, which are the result of the purple-red small flowers held in clusters in all the leaf axils, even the terminal. A little known species we collected seed of on Fan Si Pan, Vietnam's highest mountain, accompanied by Dan Hinkley in the autumn of 1999. Easily grown in a shaded position in a moist well drained fertile soil protected from freezing winds.
