Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: From a collection we gathered from a sizeable climber 7-8m long clambering over a copse of trees by a stream at high altitude in northern Vietnam in 2011. With foliage composed of up to 10 leaflets on wiry pedicels, which in turn were held by long stiff petioles, while the sausage-shaped purple-flushed fruit were mostly in twos and threes at the end of thick stalks. These were the result of the (probably) scented bell-shaped flowers that would have been carried in spring. 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.
