Description: A superlative rhizomatous woodland perennial species from a thick rootstock, that we have been anticipating the introduction for some years. Since first encountering it in the high mountain forests of the area it is named for, Tonkin an area that straddles the border of Vietnam and China. Here we encounter the meter long arching stems clothed with broad almost rounded leaves impressed with parallel veining, bearing a few large terminal 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.
