Often grown as a foliage houseplant for cool situations, this is also a very successful shade-tolerant garden plant. It is suitable for seaside gardens, or against warm walls and in sheltered corners inland - hard frost can injure the leaves, but plants will recover if the roots are protected from frost. The large glossy leaves make it a useful addition to tropical-type planting plans. Plant in spring to allow time to establish before the frosts. Remove berries to increase leaf size, and water and feed regularly. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
