A familiar name in cultivation closely related to Hydrangea, but not seen in cultivation since its discovery in this area in the 18th Century, by an Italian missionary. Here forming a small shrub to 2m high, in the wild, slightly less in cultivation. With upright branches of narrow hairy leaves, thick textured and, semi-evergreen. Bearing August-frost, dense terminal branched clusters of fertile white petalled flowers, closely followed by violet-blue berries. One of the few collections we made near Nonghat in the north of Lao, on the Vietnamese border. Untried for hardiness keep out of cold winds, sun or shade. in a sheltered spot, or in a container. The name D. febrifuga has been erroneously applied to D. cynea in cultivation.
