This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Said to contain three times as many antioxidants as blueberries, these dark purple-red berries, which can be harvested in autumn, have a tart flavour when eaten raw, but are delicious when cooked and used in compotes, summer puddings and jams.

  • Garden care: Each year in February or March remove one in three of the older stems of established specimens.
