Description: Being the National Plant Collection holder of this genus we could hardly just walk past a large colony of this species in full fruit, even on holiday with our grandchildren. Such was the case during the summer of 2013, where a large colony of upright plants grew on the dry rocky hillside up in the coastal mountains outside Competa in the Axarquia region of southern Spain. With narrowly elliptic stiff opposite foliage all along the reddish few branched stems to 1.5m tall, terminating in pinkish shortly winged fruit that swell on ripening black. Easily grown in a hot sunny sheltered situation in a well drained soil. Hardy for us for well over 20 years.
