Description: An uncommon graceful deciduous shrubs, 2-3 m tall, composed of moderately sturdy branches and twigs. With lanceolate thinly leathery serrated bamboo-like leaves 8-12 cm long, but only around 2 cm wide on short petioles. Bearing conspicuous 5-merous reddish flowers on long slender stalks (peduncles) in many flowered cymes in June for us. Followed by curious propeller-like pink fruit which eventually burst open to expose the orange aril covered pendant seed from autumn to early winter. Easily grown in either sun or part shade in most types of reasonably fertile drained soils. This seed was given to us and grown by Roy Lancaster from his garden.
