We have just a few plants of this vine to offer from our collection from mid elevation on Longshou in Sichuan.  This was draping itself most effectively over a mixed stand of rhododendrons where the showy clusters of red fruit were outstanding in the fall of 2012.  A fine plant - wish we knew which one of the 28 species in China it is but will have to wait until it flowers.  Then we will know if it is monoecious or dioecious and whether two are needed to do the fruit tango.  So many questions, so few answers.  We can say that it is deciduous, vigorous, in the falmily Schsandraceae and that virtually all Schsandra in China have use for medicinal properties.
