Skimmia arborescens ssp. nitida - BSWJ8239

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £45.00
A new species to us when we collected seed of this little known shrub on our steep ascent of Fan Xi Pan, the highest mountain of Northern Vietnam. Where it clung on to almost vertical terrain within this steep forest, forming slender shrubs to 3m tall, with small ovate-acuminate leaves in these starved conditions, bearing heads of congested black fruit, which succeeded the greenish-white widely opening flowers of April-May. Easily grown in light to dark shade in a humus enriched acidic or alkaline soil.
