This short, tender shrub has elliptical green leaves, producing small bell-shaped, five-petaled flowers and small red berries. Preferring a sheltered spot in full sun, this plant will grow well after all chance of frost is gone, but would need to be brought inside the green house to overwinter, or grown again from seed. The berries are very popular with birds!
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
