Description: A non-climbing species with an upright slightly arching rigid stem, bearing large ovate serrulate and acuminate tipped opposite pairs of leaves. With both terminal and axillary long lobbed starry violet flowers backed by long slender calyx lobes. Followed by black glossy fruit. Best grown in a well drained fertile soil with plenty of moisture retention in sun. A seed collection from the trail up to a cloud drenched peak close to Ga Thanh, a minority hill-tribe village deep in the mountains of Cao Bang Province north-eastern Vietnam in 2017. Luckily for us the village chief had arranged for one of his eight wives to knock up a meal for us on our return.
