Dense clusters of small tubular, fragrant, white or pink-tinged flowers, borne on the bare stems in late autumn and, in mild weather, through winter to early spring. Bright red berries follow.

Any reasonably fertile, moist, well drained soil in sun or part shade.
If required, prune back shoots after flowering and preferably before the start of summer. Remove a proportion of the older stems at the base.
