Thriving in our demo gardens for 10 years now, this rare & unusual Pokeberry (NOT INVASIVE – doesn’t spread at all) emerges each Spring, unfolding into a beautiful, multi-stalked silhouette holding bold, 7”, lime green, tropicalesque leaves. April brings a crown of showy, upright, 10”, frothy white racemes lasting until July when they are transformed into spectacular spikes of big, plump, shiny, black berries much loved by birds. Tolerates any soil even CLAY, but best with compost added. Highly recommended! To 4’ x 4’. Deciduous in Winter. All parts poisonous.
