PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Leycesteria formosa
Pheasant Berry
Type/Hardiness Perennial, Shrub, Hardy
Flowering period Summer-Autumn
Height 6ft/2m
Light preference Sun
Soil preference Any reasonable soil
Sowing time/depth , Barely cover
The stems of this most unusual-looking plant resemble bamboo and are a feature in the winter garden. However, they should be cut back hard in spring to encourage new, bushy growth. The flowers are small, appearing as nodding bunches surrounded by dark-maroon bracts, followed by reddish-brown berries which are not considered to be edible.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow in winter, in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse, covering thinly with compost or vermiculite. Transfer seedlings individually to 3in pots and grow on, planting out when large enough.
