Pot Size: 4 litre
Description: A wonderful species introduced in recent times from limestone areas of Sichuan by Roy Lancaster and later Dan Hinkley. Best seen growing on raised areas to extenuate one of its most endearing features of the white waxy undersides of the broad foliage. Bearing loose spikes of contrasting coral red and creamy white flowers in autumn, meanwhile the foliage despite being evergreen can transform to fiery reds when grown in good light. The plump rounded bloomy fruit are held through the winter into spring if the birds leave them. Best grown in a reasonably sheltered site out of cold winds in a moisture retentive, but well drained soil, with added lime in very acidic soils.
