Makes a strong vertical shape, and combines well with other exotica, such as bananas and palms. But looks equally at home in more conventional and hardy ornamental borders, often used when small to give structure to annual bedding schemes. Looks good adjacent to other large foliage plants or some of the softer, gentle grasses which offset the hard lines of the leaves. When choosing flowering neighbours, opt for fiery colours - reds, yellows and oranges for a dramatic display. Although grown for its foliage, the plants do flower. In mid-summer a large spray of small scented white flowers is produced followed by attractive, little round red berries.

Height: 2m.

Type: TShr

Hardy in: zones 10-11 (10 Celsius)

Sowing instructions: Sow the seed in small pots or in seed trays in a seed and potting compost mixture and cover with 2mm of compost. Keep in a warm temperature around 18-22 Celsius. Germination in 8-12 weeks (some may take a little longer).

Planting instructions: prefers good light, but in very hot areas give them some protection from direct sun, under the canopy of palms or trees is perfect. Use loam-based compost which is quite free draining, but tends to hold. Add an extra ten per cent of sharp grit sand.
