Pot Size: 2 litre
Description: A justifiably popular invaluable evergreen shrub, yet still very rarely seen in cultivation. Growing in very exposed locations in the wild, particularly in coastal areas, where they are often encountered on dry exposed sea cliffs. Only forming a medium sized to small shrub with thick leathery oblong leaves, which emerge deep red slowly metamorphosing bronze over months. Flowers are born in the upper leaf axils in May followed on female plants with dark purple bloomy fruit. Our collection from Kyushu, Japan late 2015. Best grown in a free draining soil in full sun to part shade, sheltered from freezing winds, as this is from a maritime climate, only sometimes seen growing inland where they grow larger.
