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.

A true aristocrat of the garden, this refined, evergreen shrub is a great specimen for mild climate gardens. Creamy yellow-green perfumed blossoms result in glistening black fruit in autumn. The distinctive foliage, oval in shape and a deep green, is held along beautiful red young stems.

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.
