Flowering August to frost, even through a mild winter, with dense terminal branched cymes of pale blue to pink all fertile flowers (depending on pH), followed by blue to purple fleshy fruit. Originating from one of our seed collections gathered at 2,500m from the small forested area of Lava West Bengal northern India during our expedition there in 1994.
