Native to southeastern Gansu and southwestern Shaanxi in China, this rare and elusive plant is a most elegant and graceful woodlander. Arching stems bear green elliptical leaves arranged like wings, under which appear whorls of purplish flowers in the leaf axils, and later appear the dangling blue/black fruits.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
