Carrying terminal inflorescences of small greenish-yellow flowers April-May, followed by cymes of red fruit which eventually open to reveal the glossy black seed. A highly valued shrub in its native Japan, which is where we collected the seed of this small to medium sized deciduous shrub on the Kii Peninsular close to Wakayama on the east coast in 2006. Sansho, the seed is used as a peppery spice, while the young leaves are used as a paste or garnish. Easily cultivated in part-shade to full sun in a drained fertile soil.******** ****** ****** ****** This plant is supplied as open ground/bare-rooted, during the dormant winter months,the pot size given is
