Description: From our seed collection gathered in a moist valley in the Hoàng Liên Son Mountain Range in northern Vietnam in 2011. Where this evergreen species grew at the edge of the forest forming an impressively tree with a wide canopy to 15m tall bearing red fruit in large cone-shaped infructescence. The oblong leaves were leathery with only the midribs covered in fine brown hairs while the older dark green glossy leaves are thick-textured and leathery to 26cm long. Bearing pink to even red flowers which are scented open May-June. Best grown in sun to light shade in a freely draining soil with good moisture retention out of freezing winds
