From a seed collection gathered from close to the small village of Y Ty from a mountain pass on the border between northern Vietnam and China with Peter Wharton in 2007. With blue-black orbicular fruit collected from a semi-evergreen clump forming species with bamboo-like stems and foliage to 1m tall, growing with black cardamom. Bearing clusters of long campanulate dark reddish flowers on the ends of short branches in summer. A distinct variety on account of the length of flowers to 4cm with oblanceolate tepals that are around 4 mm wide with acuminate apex.
