Pot Size: 10 litre
Description: A charming small evergreen shrub we found on our trek along the Singalila Ridge in view of Darjeeling at close to 3000m, where I was struggling to keep up with Sue and our friend Sally Goddard, suffering from a debilitating form of tonsillitis which was turning septic (wonderful). Forming mounds of dark green glossy elliptical leaves, draped with masses of small purple-red flowers on very long wiry pendulous stalks in summer, transforming to decorative winged capsules by autumn when they burst open to reveal the pink aril covered seed. Easily grown in part to full shade in a moisture retentive drained soil. Previously offered as E. theaefolius.
