Description: From our last day on the Five Fingers trail on the opposite side of the valley to Fansipan Mountain the highest peak in that area of northern Vietnam. Where there was a good sized colony of this clump-forming species with long strap-shaped leaves to nearly 1m tall by 2-3cm wide. Bearing in June-July long spikes of white to pales purple flowers on brown scapes to 60cm tall, followed by late summer by ovate blue fruit. This collection was found growing within the high altitude forest at 2350m, growing with a Disporopsis. Easily grown in full to part shade in a good fertile soil that is reasonably moisture retentive, while being drained. Very drought tolerant for short periods.
