Description: From one of our collections gathered from the slopes of Fansipan in northern Vietnam during the winter of 2006. Where this plant only formed a large densely branched well clothed shrub by elongated leathery dark green leaves 20-30cm long, 3m tall as it had been burnt bach in a forest fire. Bearing large brilliant pink cone-like seed capsules splitting to reveal the red-orange aril covered seed a result of the scented solitary creamy white ageing to pink flowers 10cm across carried in mid summer. Best grown in a sheltered sight in sun or light shade in a lime-free to neutral fertile drained soil.
