PHOTINIA DAVIDIANA 'PALETTE'
Common name: Christmas berry, Rainbow Hedge
Plant Classification: Hardy shrub
Minimum Height: 1.2 meters
Maximum Height: 1.8 meters
Packet Content(approx.): 10 large seeds
Also called Stransvaesia, this is an excellent, attractive, slow-growing and long lived hardy shrub. The leaves are splashed pink and cream and make a superb foil to the trusses of white flowers which in turn become bunches of red berries in late autumn. Some of the seedlings may be green-leafed.
Sowing advice: These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat needed and the seed tray is best left in a cool spot and kept moist, seeds sometimes germinating very slowly indeed in cool conditions in the spring, whenever they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
