Reineckea carnea Japanese form - BSWJ4808

Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Price: £10.00
Our collection from the hills of Chiba, Japan, way back in 1993. Where it formed a dense ground-covering mat of upright sharply pointed leaves with conspicuous parallel veining, giving them a pleated appearance. An evergreen member of the Asparagus family, thrusting its above ground creeping-rooting rhizomes forward, forming a valuable cover even in dense shade, where it will tolerate drought conditions for short periods. Bearing pink lily of the valley-like flowers August-October, followed by red berries. Height 20cm best in acid-neutral soil.
