Pot Size: 5 litre
Description: From of our seed collections gathered from the northern most area of Vietnam on the border with China, in the forests of Y Ty in the autumn of 2011. Where it had formed a small tree 6-7m tall with a broad canopy, well branched above with dark green red tipped glossy broadly oblong-elliptic leathery leaves to 7-11 x 3.5cm on red petioles. Bearing at that time depressed globose red fruit 2cm across in axillary few or in clusters, these were the result of the pale yellow to white camellia-like flowers 2-3cm across borne May-June. Best grown in good light in shelter from freezing winds in an acid to neutral well drained fertile soil with a good quantity of humus added for moisture retention.
