Description:
Literally growing by the side of the road we came to a screeching halt when I noticed a blue flash. As we were driving out of Cao Bang Province in the north east of Vietnam over a high mountain pass a week before Christmas 2017. A species I had not previously encountered with ovate-elliptic hydrangea-like foliage of a thin texture on distinctly dark blue stems, with the colour running into the foliage on some of the young growth. Only forming small shrubs a little over a meter tall, but wider, due to the exposed and rocky environment. Bearing plenty of terminal cymes of bright blue berries that encapsulated the seed. Untried for hardiness hence keep out of cold winds, best grown in sun to part shade in a sheltered spot, or in a container.
