Pot Size: 10 litre
Description: After many attempts to germinate previous collections of this large ornate species, we finally made it. From seed we gathered near Meifeng at 2250m in the Central Mountains of Taiwan in 2015. Where it had formed a huge shrub 10m tall by 7m wide with narrowly obovate leathery round-ended leaves to 15 cm long, coppery coloured and distinctly serrated when young. A form that is endemic to this one area. With terminal cymes of deep orange turning red fruit at the time. Reputed to be lime tolerant and frost resistant, best grown in a drained fertile soil in full sun to part shade.
