Description: From seed I collected in the mountain forests near Fan Si Pan the highest mountain in North Vietnam at around 2100m with Aaron Floden in the autumn of 2011. Where this evergreen ancient forest species only formed a small well branched tree to 8m tall. With thinly leathery dark green matt pointed leaves to 10-12cm long in slender stems with dense gingery hair on the young growth in this form. Bearing white many narrow petalled flowers to 10cm across, followed by long spikes bearing seed capsules splitting to reveal the red-orange aril covered seed. Best grown in sun to light shade in a freely draining soil with good moisture retention out of freezing winds.
