Description
 
Great form of this epiphytic evergreen species from northern Vietnam with rich purple foliage when young which gradually fades in intensity as the summer turns to fall.  Small red or green flowers in profusion followed by red fruit.  This has been undamaged to overnight 10F for us which gave lie to our vaunted store of horticultural certainties so we expect hardiness to zone 7 maybe lower with mulch.  If the nursery was burning, this would be among the 11 Polygonatum we would run in to get.
