Description: A small to medium sized evergreen shrub which is new to cultivation, that we collected the seed of from the Cordillera de Talamanca, Costa Rica in 2004, at nearly 3300m elevation. Where it grew high up in the cool clouds mimicking something from the myrtle family with stiff small glossy serrated leaves and plump black fruit, which were the result of the white bell-shaped flowers sometimes ageing pink held in terminal racemes April-June for us. Best grown in a well drained soil with a little added humus in full sun to light shade, protected from freezing winds.
