Flowers: Jun-Jul.  Plant in part shade or woodland.  HxS 45x30cm

A rather unique plant in that Yaks don’t eat it (or deer if you are not so exotic!).  An herbaceous honeysuckle relative with tiny white flowers in early summer, but grown for its lovely clusters of marble sized red fruits in autumn which persist through winter.  Found growing wild in China and Tibet.  Grow it in a shady border or woodland area.

Care & Maintenance.

Easy and reliable.  Divide in spring or take semi-ripe cuttings.  Will also set seed which should be planted fresh.
