Forming tall stands to 2m high in the garden that Miss Ellen Willmott kept on the Italian Riviera at Boccanegra over 100 years ago. By kind permission of Ursula Piacenza who has lovingly restored the garden. From a creeping woody rhizome, an evergreen sub-shrub with upright unbranched stems 1-2m tall, bearing normally ovate abruptly soft pointed cladodes to 12.5 x 7 cm, with both male and female white and purple tiny flowers carried in the cooler months, on the cladode in various positions. Followed by red fruit when pollination takes place. Shelter from hard frosts. Records show that these plants originated from the wild in Sicily. Slow to increase in British climates.
