Architectural large shrub/small tree. Evergreen with distinctive glossy "fingered" leaves. This native can reach up to 6m high by 4m wide. Grows naturally throughout New Zealand in moist broadleaf forest. Purple berries are produced late summer/autumn which are very popular with birds. Plant in a shady site that is sheltered, under a large tree is ideal. Add compost when planting in sandy soils and add a thick organic mulch. New growth can be damaged by frost but will be protected under the protection of a larger tree.
