Think I have to have one of these. I think the berries are stunning. What are they like the rest of the year? @Ibohlin

@pelly hi Jane, go for it, it is a great plant and so unusual. I bought it only a few weeks ago when the berries were already on it. Apparently it has beautiful pinky/purple flowers. You need 2 plants to produce berries apparently but I'll see what it does next year before I buy another.

I love it, is it true you have to have 2 for them to produce berries 😁

Yes @angiecrazycatlady but they were quite pricey, especially when I wasn't going to buy any plants, so will look for smaller/cheaper at a later stage. Will need to be careful where I plant it too as they can grow 10ft x 8ft and I only have a small garden 🙈

Have to say, I don't have two and mine is overflowing with berries! It's about 4 years old. @angiecrazycatlady @beckers1974
