an evergreen shrub found on seashores, forest edges, or precipice
edges in coastal areas, extends branches in a liana way and grows to
2-4m in height, with dark brown or gray-brown barks. Leaves are
alternate, 5-10cm long, 4-6cm wide, in an overall oval shape, with
tips abruptly becoming narrow to become shortly pointed, bases
orbicular, and thick texture. At first, surfaces are scaly hairs but
gradually loosen and turn deep green and glossy. The back surfaces
are silver-white, with dense, shiny, scaly hairs and sparse light
brown or brown scaly hairs. Axils set 1-3 white flowers hanging.
Outside the flowers and peduncles are thick, scaly hairs and some
pale brown scaly hairs. False fruit is 1.5-2cm long, in the shape of
a long oblong, and matures in March-May, which looks whitish because
of the dense scaly hairs. Bloom time: October-November.
