Flattened heads of strongly fragrant pinkish-white flowers open above a foil of evergreen leaves from December to May. Attractive dark blue-black berries appear later, and indeed growing several in the same area will encourage a good display of these. Native to the Mediterranean area of Europe and North Africa, this lovely, long-flowering shrub is perfect for brightening partly shady areas when little else is in flower. Reliable and easy-to-grow, the dark green foliage provides a dense backdrop for ornamental or feature plants.
Seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. Sow into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of year, cover to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; seed tray is best left in a cool protected spot and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in spring, regardless of when sown.
