China. Diana Reeck from Collector's Nursery introduced us to Disporum bodinieri which she collected during a trip to China. The thin upright stems need to be staked if this is grown in too much shade because they tend to flop. The glossy narrow lance-shaped to obovate leaves are deeply etched with veins running longitudinally from stem to tip which gives the leaves a nice texture. Underneath the terminal leaves hide the delicate white bell flowers in sets of 2 or 3. The fruits ripen from green to purple by the end of summer.

May and June.   56 in. x 10 in.
