Disporum cantoniense v. sikkimense - BSWJ2337

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £20.00
A variety of this species that differs so much that it is difficult to equate it to the species. A woodland perennial, from a relatively thick creeping rhizome, producing slender upright branching stems 80-90cm tall. Bearing ovate pale green distinctly veined leaves to 7.5cm long, still emerging as the stems extend. With terminal sessile umbels of distinctly large greenish-white broadly funnel-shaped flowers on long bristly stalks May-June, followed by globose blue-black berries August-on. From one of our collections made from the forest of a small area of West Bengal northern India that we visited in 1994. Easily grown in a shaded site in a leafy drained soil, protecting the roots from severe frost.
