Description: A distinct evergreen (possibly semi-evergreen in our climate) tree or large shrub 5m tall double that in the wild, that we gathered this collection early on our rain drenched trek through a deep valley in The Huang Lien Mountain Range in the north of Vietnam in 2011. With alternate ovate to ovate-oblong foliage glossy above pale and bristly below only 6cm long, with three prominent longitudinal veins distinctly covered in gingery hair below. With single to many fragrant yellow flowers carried directly from the young branches October to March. Followed by glossy globose fruit May-August in the wild. Best grown in full sun to light shade in a well drained acid-neutral soil with a bit of moisture retention.
