Native to Nepal and some areas of india, this attractive deciduous shrub bears attractive, thick, oval, leathery leaves which are hairy underneath. In late autumn come the globular, bright crimson to maroon berries, much loved by birds in the winter.
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.
