Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: A small evergreen species (to 4m) with small narrowly 5-foliate dark green leathery leaves held on slender ridged stems, bearing masses of fluffy balls fixed at the base by black ripe seed which had succeeded the white scented flowers held in generous lateral and terminal panicles May-July. From one of my seed collections gathered in northern Taiwan from a joint expedition with Taiwan's National Museum of Natural Science, November of 2015. Best grown in shelter from cold winds in good light in any type of humus rich fertile soil that is drained or in a conservatory. Could be var. okinawensis, if there are more leaflets than stated.
