A vigorous, evergeen shrub with arching branches, mid-green leaves and clusters of purple-red flowers in summer and autumn followed by purple-red fruit. Best grown in full sun and moist but well drained soil, preferably in a sheltered and sunny position. Native to the southern USA and South America to Chile. Hardy to -5C, possibly colder when more mature, so a good subject for planting against the south facing wall of the house, or over-wintered in a cold greenhouse. Poisonous if ingested.
