Description: One of the delightful shrubs we find growing in the Paramo (a distinct high altitude flora) in Colombia to 2.5 m tall but wider, widely branched from the base. The occasionally thorny branches somewhat congested on the old specimen we collected from, with simple, alternate and spirally arranged leaves, obovate to elliptic silvery-green. The long yellow campanulate terminal flowers with rolled up tips and exerted stigmas are held singly on short branches, resulting in black ovate fruit 1cm across. Best grown out of severe cold in a sunny well drained site.
