Description:
A female seedling we collected from Fansipan Mountain December 2006, with a permit. Which has flourished in our garden next to a male of the same species, 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 a dark green stemmed shrubs to 3m tall in shaded conditions, with parchment textured dark green oblong leaves with prominently impressed venation above and acute marginal teeth. The reddish-brown female flowers are held in tight congested inflorescences, followed by long ellipsoid red fruit, early spring for us. Best grown in moisture retentive drained soil, shaded from strong sunlight and cold winds.
