Pot Size: 4 litre
Description: One of our first introductions into cultivation, from the high altitude Central Mountains of Taiwan, gathered on our first expedition there in 1992. An imposing evergreen aerial rooting climber more often seen on cliffs, but also on trees. With glossy serrated leaves enhanced by large golf ball-like buds which burst under the pressure of the emerging frothy white flowers with sterile subtending sepals by mid-summer. Easily the hardiest of the evergreen species and the only one from 'The Old World', which we encounter at well over 3,000m on Yushan, a very cold area. Best planted with the top in full sun while sheltering the roots in shade.
