Description: Only forming small spiny shrubs with a relatively compact habit, clothed in glabrous dark green leaves which are glaucous beneath. Held on upright to arching stems, where we found this species, growing in eastern Himalayas in the autumn of 2013 at 3200m. Bearing clusters of yellow flowers in the upper leaf axils which are followed by pear-shaped, red pendant berries. A noticeable feature of this species is the brilliant red young stems which are born over the branch's first winter. This can be encouraged by pruning some branches hard to encourage the red stems. Easily grown in any fertile soil in sun or part shade.
