Description: Deciduous shrub which is semi-evergreen in mild climates growing into substantially large shrubs in the wild, but far more restrained in cultivation. Closely related to H. involucrata, which it shares many features with, including the golf ball-like bud of the inflorescence, but on a larger scale, as are the broad cymes of flowers borne in summer into autumn. The foliage however is oblong-lanceolate thin-textured and bristley 15-30 cm long narrowing at both ends. Our collection from Taroko, Taiwan. Best grown in a fertile drained soil with some moisture retention, sheltered from freezing winds.
