Description: This evergreen ancient forest species formed an impressive tree to 15m tall where we collected the seed. The younger leaves and shoots are covered in fine hairs affording this plant a very elegant appearance, while the older dark green glossy leaves are thick-textured and leathery to 20cm long. Bearing silvery white flowers with a custardy-honey like fragrance. Originating from one our collections gathered by Peter Wharton and myself from the steep high altitude forest drenched at that time only a short way from the Chinese border in northern Vietnam at around 2350m in the autumn of 2007. Best grown in sun to light shade in a freely draining soil with good moisture retention out of freezing winds.
