Holboellia latifolia from the Himalayas - WJC13811

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £25.00
We were puzzled to see so much of this vigorous woody-stemmed evergreen, twining climber in the autumn of 2013. It soon became apparent that the fruit was popular with the locals walking up and down the trail happily munching their way through the fruit and spitting the seed out into the hedgerows (where it germinated). Forming vines to 6m, with leaves composed of five or more, leathery dark green glossy leaflets. Bearing in spring an abundance of separate male (flared buttermilk-yellow) & female (plump, bronzy), highly scented flowers followed by white-purple sausage-shaped edible fruit. Best grown in a sheltered site out of freezing winds in a fertile well drained soil with some moisture retention. Closely related to and similar in habit to Stauntonia.
