Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
This erect, flirting with fastigiate, species comes via a collection by Canadian plantsman and author/auteur, Grahame Ware, from the turgid waters of the Minyong Glacier at 13000' on Kawagarbo Mountain, in the Meili Snow Mountains of Yunnan, as part of a Kunming Botanic garden expedition. Small leaves and white flowers followed by reddish fruit on a narrow and distinctively upright shrub to 7'+ so far.
