Description: A seed collection from our second encounter with this possible new species, which the current world authority dissagrees with our current naming. Found growing in the eastern Himalayas on our 2013 expedition at 2,200m, where this collection was scrambling over a large shrub, luckily bearing long slender purplish fruit. It will have male flowers a bronzy pink in colour on their exterior, greenish yellow interior, with the tips of the sepals recurving. The larger female flowers similar bronzy pink colour, both in and out, recurving at the tips. Best grown in a sheltered site out of freezing winds in a fertile well drained soil with some moisture retention. Closely related to and similar in habit to Stauntonia.
