Forming a stunning evergreen bushy densely branched shrub or small tree, with stout shoots and glaucous blue-green paddle-shaped leathery leaves. Innumerable clusters of small flowers appear in the terminal axils of the bronzy new growth in late spring. These mature to black glossy ellipsoid fruit on long stalks on female plants when pollinated. Similar in habit to D. macropodum but with a bronzy hue. Best grown in part shade with some overhead protection (edge of woodland) in a humus rich, but drained soil. Height 6m. Spread 4m.
