Colorful and distinct, this plant will bring a splash of color and extravagance to your collection with its beautiful bright red berries clusters. But try them at your own risk.
Native to Australia, this evergreen shrub can grow up to 16 feet (5 m) tall and is sought after due to its ornamental value. It has big elliptical glossy deep green leaves, long stems, and white to lilac sweetly scented flowers that grow in clusters. It flourished from late winter to spring.
The main attraction of this plant and what allows for easy identification are its many bright red berry fruits that also grow in grape-like clusters and can stay on the plant for many months. These fruits are considered edible, but botanists advise caution and moderation. This plant is hardy and great for beginners.
