Tripterygium wilfordii - NMWJ14466

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £30.00
We felt particularly privileged to be taken to the only wild plants known in Taiwan, by the University of Taipei in collaboration with the Taiwan Natural Science Museum in Taichung, to collect some of the few seed that these poor plants produce. The result of a loss of habitat, as the entire area had been cleared, resulting in giant grasses taking over. What should be a hardy woody climber bearing conspicuously yellow cordate winged seed, with bronze young leaves. Collected from Jiou-Feng north-eastern Taiwan at 670m late in 2015. Should do well in our climate from such a hostile spot, but still un-tested by ourselves. Easily grown in any type of fertile soil sun or shade.
