Leycesteria Formosa (Leycesteria formosa)

This shrub is growing in a large deep pot. It's doing really well and can take a lot of shade.

I've just tried this for the first time. No sign of flowers, but lovely leaf colour.

It will flower Oji...you just wait and see. The flowers start off quite pale and then turn dark red and white...much more spectacular as they age, then the black berries, really pretty! It's very quick to flower, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Nice. I find them quite stunning. Prolific seeders :-) I have them popping up all over. I'm growing some variegated ones from seed at the mo.

I adore the yellow one Dawn. This one is good for hiding a bit of the hot tub!
