Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A collection from northern Vietnam of this evergreen epiphytic species which is hardier than supposed as the similar subspecies tonkinensis has been fine in our garden. Chubby white bells cluster like piglets in the leaf axils and are followed by reddish fruit. Very, very rare and adds a bit of cocky plantsmanship to the garden. This was collected nearly 1200' higher than the FMWJ 13066 collection we offer.
