Description: Remarkable in fruit when I collected the seed of this species with Dan Hinkley en-route to Lijiang China in 2000, growing on a shaded woody mountainside at 3120m. A woody climber of medium size, forming tangles in small trees and shrubs, with vigorously twinning stems of small ovate-acute deciduous leaves. Bearing scented cup-shaped dark red flowers May-July, soon followed by axillary droops to 20cm long, of bright red fruit on female plants. For humus-enriched soil, part shade-full sun. Male and female flowers are normally born on separate unisexual plants (dioecious) in this group of Schisandra.
