Holboellia coriacea - BSWJ2818

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £25.00
From one of my seed collections I gathered from a hedgerow in Chiba Japan (accompanied by Dan Hinkley) in the autumn of 1995, which remains puzzling as the plant is only supposed to occur in China. Here it formed a vigorous woody-stemmed evergreen, twining climber to 6m, with leaves composed of three to five, leathery dark green glossy leaflets. Bearing in spring the pendulous segregated male and female strongly scented inflorescences (exceptionally congested in this collection), followed by sausage shaped edible fruit. Requires a sheltered site out of cold winds. Closely related to and often confused in horticulture with Stauntonia.
