Dichroa hirsuta - BWJ16315

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £30.00
A chance find on my first visit to a new area for me, where I came upon a colony of this distinct species standing to 2m tall and wider, growing in a mountainous forest. With the characteristic hydrangea-like elliptic broad foliage holding terminal corymbs of blue fruit on strongly upright dark-blue stems. The new growth was distinctly hirsute (hairy) easily identifying the species. From the dense forest of Bac Me area of Ha Giang, northern Vietnam, late 2017, which was unfortunately very wet and muddy underfoot, but much to the liking of the leaches who thought it was Christmas when they found my ankles. Untried for hardiness keep out of cold winds, best grown in sun to part shade in a sheltered spot, or in a container.
