Originally from Maurice Foster who is one of the UK's great plantsmen who would not gladly brook an inferior form. This can hit 10' in height with a narrow aspect and generally deciduous willowish or bamboo-like leaves. Small purplish flowers and outrageous jester's cap fruit with dangling orange arils.
From Guangxi Province in China comes this small-leafed evergreen creeper/climber. This was most attractive in the light to medium shade in the understory of a forested slope where it crept among mossy rocks and climbed a few feet up on nearby tree trunks. Smaller in stature than Wolong Ghost, white veins on rounded leaves.
A truly dwarf evergreen shrub that will get about a foot tall at maturity yet manages to pack a lot of interest into small package. Dense foliage picking up pinkish tints on a form evocative of a mountain in miniature. This is emminently suitable for certain bonsai style plantngs or the rock garden or just any whimsical place.
