Description

In late spring clusters of golden-yellow flowers with an amazing fragrance of vanilla and lemon open, which in turn are followed by ornamental, oval, bright red berries. The branches of this deciduous shrub carry pale blue-green leaves. It is ideal for any rich, loamy soil in full sun and makes a beautiful, long-lived addition to the rock garden.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
