It’s the shape and structure of the ovate leaves. The four slightly overlapping leaves appear perfectly arranged, as if choreographed by nature into a petal-like arrangement. Red creeps in from the tips as the cooler months arrive, also heralding the end to the flower bracts of creamy white. This strawberry-like fruit produced is edible but quite unappealing in taste. Perfect for home gardens in need of a feature or ornamental planting. Deciduous and will grow to 2.5 x 1.5.
Suitable for: Ornamental & feature plantings, home gardens
Features: Creamy-white flowers
