The Scottish Rock Garden Club....... For People Who Love Plants
I hope that whoever has it in their garden removes it promptly and that not too many of the berries have been dispersed already.
Brian,Given that it produces such a sheer number of berries, how aren't there more seedlings about? Just the little cut stem in water at the nursery had probably 100 berries on it, and that was maybe 40cm long. It must produce thousands each year, spread by birds. Cottoneaster has gone crazy by the same method here and is now a declared weed as it is invading bushland. My concern is that this too is going to escape and colonise. Triffids anyone?
This is a super plant with its berries in the autumn.As to being rampant we are just too wet and it never survives a winter here.We have tried it several times and would like to be able to grow it.
