Product Description
Schisandra chinensis, commonly known as the Magnolia vine, a member of the magnoliacea family, it is a large woody bush with pink flowers. It is one of the most ornamental edible vines you could ever wish to grow. Scratch the bark and an intense, clean fragrance that's a combination of Daphne odora and lime peel will greet your nose. The flowers of the Magnolia vine are insignificant, but the 4" clusters of shiny red berries are gorgeous. This plant is a common weed in most parts of the world. It is a perennial herb, erect or prostrate, 30-40 cm high. Stems are green or purple, bristly, thickened at the nodes. Leaves are opposite, subsessile, lanceolate-oblong denticulate. Flowers are white in axillary. They ripen in late summer on year-old wood. If the Magnolia vine is very happy, it will send up suckers from the rootball and you can propagate new vines from them. It is in flower from April to May, and the seeds ripen from August to October. Any pruning is best carried out in the spring. The flowers are sweetly scented. The leaves are also aromatic
