Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: A surprisingly hardy evergreen woody-stemmed aerial-rooting climber, given its low altitude provenance in the wild, which is inexplicably rarely seen in cultivation. Clothed in densely set long narrow oblong thick-textured and leathery glossy to dull green leaves, which provide the perfect foil for the elongating panicles of small creamy white flowers borne from May-July then sporadically until October. Our collection in 1999 from a surprisingly cool area of Lalashan in northern Taiwan, where some of the ancient trees dated back over 2½ thousand years. Best grown in sheltered conditions away from freezing winds, slowly to attain 6 m in cultivation, flowering best with the top in sun while the base is kept moist and shaded.
