Schisandra perulata - FMWJ13100

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £35.00
It was an incredible feeling after scaling one of those precarious limestone pinnacles that we find in northern Vietnam, pushing through the undergrowth and emerging in a magical grove filled with the long strings of red fruit some highlighted by ribbons of bright sunlight. Something from Alice in Wonderland. A vigorous twinning woody climber with thick-textured elliptic to ovate leaves to 15 x 10cm, with impressed venation above and remotely serrated margin. Bearing on short side branches, held on slender peduncles 15cm long, long pendant spikes 15-20cm long of red globose fruit. These the result of individual flowers recorded as being yellow or red borne in May-June in our climate. Best grown is some shelter from freezing winds in a humus enriched drained soil in sun to part shade.
