Description: We were pleasantly surprised to find some good seed on these small deciduous trees on our trek back down from The Singalila Ridge in the autumn of 2013, in glorious sunshine. We were surprised to see this species growing at such a high elevation of over 3,300m. Eventually forming a small hardy tree but more often seen as a large shrub, with slender branches laden in early spring with abundant clusters of 3-8 lightly fragrant yellow flowers. Which emerge just before or with the foliage that then extends to oblanceolate (long narrow) leaves. The round fruit were red turning black. Best grown in full sun in a well drained acid-neutral soil with a bit of moisture retention.
