An unusual, deciduous Chinese shrub with racemes of clematis like, trailing yellow/green flowers in late spring up to 35 - 45 cm long. These pretty flowers are followed by gigantic and very ornamental, metallic-blue bean pods in autumn.

Decaisnea fargesii has large dark green, pinnate leaves which can be up to 80 cm in length on established plants. A eye-catching, fruiting shrub with an exotic appearance!


  • Position: Full sun or partial shade.
  • Soil: Moist, fertile soil. Decaisnea fargesii will not generally grow well on a dry soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy. Although fully hardy when dormant in winter, Decaisnea fargesii requires protection from any severe frost once the new leaves emerge in spring.
  • Flowering Period: May - June
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate.
  • Habit: Decaisnea fargesii will grow to be a large, branching shrub with an open habit.
    • Height: 4 m (13 ft).
    • Spread: 4 m (13 ft).
  • Notes: Decaisnea fargesii is usually self-fertile, but will typically always produce a much better display of fruit if planted in small groups (2 - 3 plants or more, ideally from different sources).
