Description: From seed we collected in the mountain forests of Fan Si Pan the highest mountain in North Vietnam at around 2300m with Dan Hinkley in 2003. Where this evergreen ancient forest species formed impressively large trees to 30m tall (the seed was on the ground!). With leathery dark green glossy thick-textured leaves to 20cm long and white flowers to 17cm? across, followed by long spikes bearing seed capsules splitting to reveal the red-orange aril covered seed. Best grown in sun to light shade in a freely draining soil with good moisture retention out of freezing winds.
