Pot Size: 2 litre
Price: £12.00
From seed we collected accompanied by Dan Hinkley in the northernmost area of Vietnam, where we found this plant not far from the town of Sapa. A perennial species sometimes cultivated as it has many valued properties, used as an ink and dye. On chunky stems to 1.5m tall with leaves to 15cm long, bearing terminal and axillary spikes of purple fruit. Although considered poisonous some species are eaten, not something we would recommend. Full sun in any drained soil.
