Description: From one of our collections from Fansipan Mountain December 2006. That has flourished in our gardens with both male and female plants growing next to each other and bearing fruit annually. It is however an undescribed species not A. chlorascens (staminate flowers green) which the Vietnamese have christened A. robusta (leaves no wider than 3cm). Forming dark green stemmed shrubs to 1.5m tall in part shaded, with parchment textured dark green oblong leaves with prominently impressed venation above and acute marginal teeth. The reddish-brown flowers are held in terminal inflorescences, tight congested female ones are followed by long ellipsoid red fruit, early spring for us. Best grown in moisture retentive drained soil, shaded from strong sunlight and cold winds.
