Schisandra plena - HWJ664

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £35.00
A semi-evergreen (in our climate) twinning woody climber with relatively large glossy bronzy green heart-shaped leaves. Which we collected after a long hot trek into the mountains of northern Vietnam with Dan Hinkley on our first expedition there in 1999. Following a trail of fruit left by local children where we found long pendant racemes of ceiling wax red fruit dangling from small trees and shrubs where the climber had covered (to 6m). Theses had succeeded the unusual double flowers consisting of 11-17 pale yellow tepals, bone April-May. Best grown is some shelter from freezing winds in a humus enriched drained soil in sun to part shade. Previously offered as S. verrucosa, which is now thought to be a Kadsura.
