Disporum tonkinensis - BSWJ11672

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Since first encountering this superlative rhizomatous woodland perennial species in the high mountain forests of the area it is named for, Tonkin, an area that straddles the border of Vietnam and China. We have 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. Best grown in a moisture retentive drained soil in shade.
