Description: From our 2013 trek along the Singalila Ridge in view of Darjeeling at close to 3000m. A charming small evergreen shrub we found on our second day growing scattered amongst large trees. Forming lanky shrubs of dark green glossy linnear leaves, draped with decorative winged pink seed capsules. Some bursting open to reveal the orange aril covered seed within, these were the result of the masses of small purple-red flowers on very long wiry pendulous stalks produced in early summer - late spring. Easily grown in part to full shade in a moisture retentive drained soil.
