Plant / Product Features:
Fascinating coastal shrub with tangled wiry stems and deciduous small bright green round to heart shaped leaves. Very hardy and tolerates quite dry soil. Dislikes excess moisture which often leads to root rot. This can be alleviated by providing a cool root run. Delicate white flowers in summer followed by transluscent white edible fruit. The fruit attracts birds, lizards and NZ small native copper butterfly. Keep irrigation away from this plant but mulch to conserve moisture and ensure mulch is kept clear of the trunk. Easily pruned to shape.

Landscaping Uses:
An interesting specimen to provide contrast in the garden. Useful as an informal low hedge in dry exposed conditions. Very hardy and wind resistant. Bush glistens in sunlight after rain.
