Description: Another new species to cultivation from the northern-most area of northern Vietnam close to China. The seed was collected from the only plants seen in fruit in this area, close to the hill-town of Sapa. Where it only formed small single-stemmed trees to 4-5m tall, still bearing some deeply pinnately-lobbed juvenile foliage at this stage of growth, as well as mature foliage being more similar to S. macrophylla. The fruit was large for this taxon almost as large as grapes, held in terminal upright racemes of large rounded umbels. Will most likely require frost protection while young, being completely new to cultivation its hardiness will take some time to assess. Best grown in sun to light shade in a fertile moisture retentive soil sheltered from cold winds.
