Description

This rare and exceptionally lovely form of the usual mauve-berried form bears compact clusters of snow white berries on arching stems through the autumn months and often into winter. When in flower it is most attractive to birds and butterflies, and later it is a superb and truly eye-catching addition to your garden, providing very welcome end-of-season interest when all else has finished.

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.
