Description: One of the most aristocratic species we have collected, which does not appear to be in cultivation, although it is perfectly hardy and unchallenging to cultivate. This collection originating from our eastern Nepal expedition in 2001, where it formed a sizeable shrub clothed in its distinct foliage of large cordate ribbed or impressed cross-venation, serrated leaves. Bearing at that time red ripening black ellipsoid fruit in cymes, these were the result of the fragrant white tinged pink flared flowers, which emerge before or with the foliage in spring. Easily grown in (acid-neutral) fertile drained soil with some humus, best in not too hot a spot, but in good light.
