Description: Undoubtedly a wonderful sight when we find the fruit of this genus in the wild, long densely packed pendant strings of (edible) ceiling-wax-red in this species. We found this collection at the start of our eastern Himalaya expedition in the east of the kingdom, in the autumn of 2013 at 3,000m, growing over Magnolia globosa. Forming twining deciduous woody climbers to 6m tall/long, with elliptic pale green soft textured deciduous foliage to 15cm long. Bearing strongly scented white to palest pink flowers sometimes red rimmed, from the leaf axils April-June. Male and female flowers are normally born on separate unisexual plants (dioecious) in this group of Schisandra. Easily grown in any type of fertile humus-enriched soil in part shade-full sun with the roots in shade.
