If not harvested and left to mature, the young pinkish hued 30 cm long pinnate leaves become a lovely green in summer. Fast growing tree that takes well to pruning if you want to keep it from growing too tall. Dark brown bark has a lovely reddish cast. Tolerant of many soil types, but not extremely dry hot areas.

Schisandra chinensis seeds (Magnolia Vine)
Our Price: $3.75

A gendered species where, in May-June, tiny white sweetly fragrant pnk and white flowers adorn the vines on both sexes. On female plants dense grape like clusters of berries ripen from green to brilliant red edible morsels that are used in traditional Chinese Medicine as an 'adaptogen'. Lustrous leaves and graceful woody vine form makes this also a highly ornamental for landscape. Tolerates shade, but needs evenly moist fertile soil. Vigorous as it can grow 1m or more a year maxing out to 10 meters in every direction. Plants need a sturdy arbor, trellis, or fence or what have you.
