Description: From one of the many gateways to the Paramo (alpine flora) in Colombia to the south of Bogota. Forming an elegant small evergreen tree or sizeable shrub in the wild 3-3.5m tall clad with bright green ovate leaves. The epithet possibly referring to their likeness to laurel leaves, but the flowers were large as were the purplish-red fruit when we first encountered it in September 2004, returning in December to collect the fat black fruit. Best grown in a sheltered site in a drained fertile soil in full sun protected from severe cold.
