CORIARIA TERMINALIS XANTHOCARPA
This rare deciduous sub-shrub, originating from E Nepal, is notable for its striking fruit and foliage. Red arching stems bear opposite pairs of pinnately arranged fern-like leaves, and terminal cylindrical spikes of red-tipped flowers which are later followed by very unusual, succulent, spherical, lobed, translucent, amber-yellow, flower-like fruits in summer and through autumn. It grows with a semi-prostrate habit quite low to the ground.
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 thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination usually occurs within 4 to 6 weeks although some seeds may take much longer.
