Info

From Iran and other nearby "axis of evil" countries comes one of our favorite garden plants. This highly coveted plant will never be found at Wal-Mart...due to its slow propagation. From seed, it takes 5-7 years to become a saleable plant! Prized by florists and gardeners alike, the 4' long green stems, that arch outward from a central clump, are clothed with thick waxy-green leaves that remain evergreen all winter. After establishment, the clumps are laden with marble-sized reddish-orange berries in fall...incredibly easy, durable, and drought-tolerant for even the deepest of shady areas! In Greek mythology, Danae was the daughter of King Acrisius of Argos...the dude who became a rock gardener when he was shown Medusa's head.

SLOW.....favorite of florists because it will last in a vase for months. Makes a nice green clump in dry shade. RARE in commerce.
