Disporum cantoniense v. y-tiense - HWJ1045

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A seed collection from a memorable day on my explorative visit to a mountain pass close to a small village of Y Ty, on the border between northern Vietnam and China. The blue-black fruit containing the seed was collected from a semi-evergreen clump forming species to 1.5m tall, growing in scrub and grasses. With bamboo-like stems and foliage, bearing clusters of long campanulate dark reddish flowers on the ends of short branches. A distinct variety on account of the length of flowers to 4cm with oblanceolate tepals that are around 4 mm wide with acuminate apex. Best grown in a sheltered position in part shade in a moisture retentive drained soil.
