New Zealand. We grow Hymenanthera alpina for the complex layering of near-naked branches and the bounty of persistant white berries that decorate those branches. The sparse foliage is dark green and yew-like spiralling in a loose arrangement down the branches. The branches are ash gray and very visible. Although we were told this requires male and female plants to bear fruit, that has not proven to be true. We have grown this successfully in a low water gravel border and in a dry part shade setting.

Early summer.  6 ft. x 3 ft.
