This epiphytic Vaccinium relative - indeed some have merged the two genera - is a stunner.  Growing on trees in Sikkim, Bhutan, Nepal and Arunachal Pradesh, this forms woody lignotubers from which arise the branches holding narrow pendant yellow flowers in late winter and spring.  Not frost tolerant.
