Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
From fruit we collected with Dan Hinkley in the Mewa Khola Eastern Nepal in 2002 at 2900m. Where this invaluable winter flowering evergreen gregarious suckering-shrub, with leathery lanceolate leaves had formed large colonies with flexuous stems to only 60cm tall. Bearing black fruit in the upper leaf axils, succeeding the highly scented white purple tipped staminate flowers January-April. Very shade tolerant, easily grown in any fertile soil, good on chalk.
