Attractive seed-heads, Dramatic foliage
This bushy shrub is grown for its copper-flushed purple, shiny leaves, which are most intense in winter, as well as its attractive seed capsules which appear in late summer to autumn. In its native New Zealand, it is often used as hedging in coastal situations, as it is tolerant of windy conditions. In this country it should be grown either outside in a sheltered, sunny, frost-free site, or in a pot which can be moved indoors over winter.
