Disporum tonkinensis - BSWJ11766

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
From a seed collection gathered from close to the small village of Y Ty from a mountain pass on the border between northern Vietnam and China in 2006. Where Sue and I found the meter long arching stems clothed with broad almost rounded leaves impressed with parallel veining, bearing a few large terminal bluish fruit, resulting from the showy red tipped white bell-shaped flowers. Maybe its the weight of this fruit that arches the tips of the stems all the way to the ground, where this species is unique in forming terminal plantlets. Best grown in a moisture retentive drained soil in shade.
