Description: From seed we collected on the wooded slopes of Mt. Langbian near Dalat a hill station in Vietnam in 2003. Where it formed small clumps of yellow upright foliage with opened seed capsules of bright red fleshy seed. A rare species in cultivation and much valued by those who know it for its sturdy stems to 1m tall with narrow leaves 20-40cm long, bearing in summer a cone-like terminal spidery inflorescence, of long white very fragrant flowers with long exerted orange stamen, in long yellow tubes. Spread 1.5m. Full sun or part shade in a moisture retentive, but well drained soil, protect from severe frost. This collection has survived at least -15C in an open field without protection during the winter of 2010/11.
