Disporum tonkinensis - HWJ882

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
From seed collected on Fansipan the highest mountain in northern Vietnam, gathered in 2003 with Dan Hinkley. A superlative rhizomatous woodland perennial species from a thick rootstock, that we have been anticipating the introduction for some years. Here we encountered the meter long arching stems clothed with broad almost rounded leaves impressed with parallel veining, bearing terminal clusters of bluish fruit, resulting from the showy red tipped white bell-shaped flowers. Maybe its the weight of this fruit that arches the tips of the stems all the way to the ground, where this species is unique in forming terminal plantlets.
