This rare and delightful deciduous dwarf shrub from China bears sweetly-perfumed, ivory-white flowers in spring, which give way to bright red ornamental berries in late summer and autumn. These plants are quite slow-growing and very long-lived but are well worth the wait. Few seeds collected.
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.
