Pot Size: 4 litre
Description: From one of our seed collection gathered in 2011 from the high altitude forests on the slopes of Fansipan, the highest mountain in Vietnam. Where it only formed a large shrub or multi stemmed small tree, with large paddle-shaped dark glossy leaves white below and terminal pink cones of red seed. The result of the large white flowers with red centres opening in mid-summer in our garden from June to August, originally collected by Dan Hinkley and ourselves in 1999. Yet only named to science in 2011. Proving perfectly hardy to -15C here in a well drained soil with good moisture retention in part shade.
