Description

One of the most versatile evergreen shrubs with a spreading habit, it has broad, yellow-margined leaves, with fine autumn and winter colour, which are tinged pink in winter. The fruit is a four-lobed, pale green pod-like berry, which splits open to reveal the attractive, fleshy-coated orange seeds. It makes an excellent specimen shrub, a low informal hedge or an ideal climber on walls. AGM Winner

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. Variegation on seedlings may vary and your favourites selected out.
