A rare chinese species named after the Bureia mountains in China. Grows to 15' with lantana-like leaves, only finer textured. Leaves are shinier and more narrow than V. lantana. Young shoots are covered with a dense down which they loose the following year, revealing an almost white bark. Fertile white flowers in May producing fruit that progress from red to blue-black. Red-yellow fall color.
One of the parents of V. x 'Emerald Triumph'. Quite adaptable as it will grow in drier, calcareous soils.
