Celastrus hookeri - BSWJ11667

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £25.00
A distinct species of this woody twining semi-evergreen climbing shrub that we collected the seed of in the high altitude forest of northern Vietnam, in the autumn of 2006, when the rain was falling by the bucket full. Forming a stocky plant with almost rounded to ovate leaves with conspicuously impressed venation, availing a textured effect. As with so many species the fruiting was good with panicles of rounded yellow capsules splitting to reveal the contrasting orange-red aril surrounding the seed, a feature exploited by flower arrangers particularly in the East. Easily grown in any type of fertile soil in sun or shade.
