Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: A male clone which bears larger flowers with a conspicuous boss of fat stamen, essential as a pollinator for female plants to produce long drupes of ceiling-wax-red fruit. A delightful sight when we first collected the fruit in northern India on the Singalila Ridge in 1994 at around 3300m. Where this twining deciduous woody climber to 6m tall had borne strongly scented white to palest pink flowers sometimes red rimmed, from the leaf axils April-June. A layer from one of our original plants, flourishing without protection in our field. Easily grown in any type of fertile humus-enriched soil in part shade-full sun with the roots in shade.
