Polygonatum mengtzense f. tonkinensis - HWJ573

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A little known species we collected seed of on Fan Si Pan, Vietnam's highest mountain, accompanied by Dan Hinkley in the autumn of 1999.Our most popular species due to the retention of its alternate thick-textured slender foliage in milder climates like our own. Held on strikingly bright purple arching stems which are even brighter when the red fruit are still attached as they can be for months on this species, which are the result of the purple-red small flowers held in clusters in all the leaf axils, even the terminal. It has transpired that the name used is a synonym, hence this is an undescribed species which we await the correct naming in due course. Easily grown in a shaded position in a moist well drained fertile soil protected from freezing winds.
