A very distinct species, which we collected from Fansipan the highest mountain in Vietnam, with Dan Hinkley in the autumn of 2003. Where this woody-stemmed evergreen, twining climber to 5m long bore parchment-textured dull green conspicuously veined leaves, pale below, composed of 3 broad leaflets. Bearing in April-May separate exceptionally large (for Holboellia) white purple tinted male and female scented flowers, followed by edible sausage-shaped purple-red fruits, when pollinated. Best grown in good garden soils enriched with organic matter, will require a sheltered site out of the coldest winds. Protect from severe cold until mature. Closely related to and similar in habit to Stauntonia. Introduced as H. chapaensis.
