Description:
A familiar site in dense forest in the area surrounding Sapa, an old French hill-station now tourist resort in the mountains of northern Vietnam, near the border crossing at Lao Cai. Collected from a small shrub, but can be up to 3m tall and wide in this area, forming a somewhat dome-shape. With bluish succulent branches that age to wood, bearing oblong-elliptic serrulate leaves up to 25 x 10 cm with long acuminate tips and are hairy below. Holding terminal corymbose panicles of cobalt-blue berries when I found it, the result of the blue all fertile flowers held in May-June in the wild, late summer in UK gardens. Not tried for hardiness yet, hence best kept out of cold winds, grown in sun to part shade in a sheltered spot, or in a container.
