Info

This Tasmanian native has small lance-shaped dark evergreen leaves. The dark foliage is highlighted by the purple-red stems. Plants we've seen are only 6-8' tall, but may get bigger. We grow as a handsome container plant. Plants in Eugene have survived in the ground for many years in more protected areas than in our garden. Flowers are small and white but make a nice show on the plant.

Mountain Pepper' or 'Winter's Bark' is the name given to this handsome evergreen shrub that is native to Tasmania. To about 6' tall and 4' wide in our climate it has dramatic red stems that are a great foil to the deep green leaves. In early spring small chartreuse/white flowers followed by black berries. Full sun in a warm position. This shrub has been grown successfully in the Pacific Northwest for at least 40 years. Regular water in summer. Looks excellent year round. Syn. Tasmannia lanceolata.

Wonderful Tasman evergreen shrub that is hardier than might be expected. One of those "fussless" plants which really requires very little from you except acknowledgement of a job well done. Rather narrower than wide, this does well in bright shade as well as sun. Peppery leaves.
