Hardiness level Green
Originating in Nepal, Bhutan and Sikkim, this plant is hardy. An upright shrub to 2 x 2metres over 20 years, it is smothered in small pinky-white flowers followed by scarlet berries. It is semi-evergreen, some of the leaves may turn red before falling in the autumn.
An exposed or sheltered site on any well drained soil, any aspect but best in full sun. It can be grown as a free standing shrub but often it is seen pruned as a hedge.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
