Description: No prizes for guessing which country this species hails from. A Taiwanese species we have been working on for years, but has yet to be formally named. Initially only known from a single mountainside, which is heavily infested with a sap-sucking scale insect (also new to science) which is debilitating the entire stock. It's a long story, but finally we have managed to build up a clean stock of this relatively small creeping species with dark green small elliptic to oblong leaves similar in habit to S. hookeri, bearing an abundance of small staminate scented flowers in late winter early spring with purple stamen and female flowers with persistent styles in twos, which are succeeded by purple-black fruit. Easily grown in shade to light shade in a humusy soil that is reasonably drained.
