Young plants of this extremely rare species which we speculate will have only light frost tolerance so perhaps good for zones 9-10.  Evergreen bold leaves bringing to mind an unholy union between a laurel and a rhododendron.  Insignificant flowers at a relatively young age.   A number of novel alkaloids have been isolated from this species if this makes up in any way for the lack of showy flowers.  A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering
