This erect, evergreen shrub or small tree species has linear to lance-shaped leaves. These are typically clustered at the tips of branches. Flowers are small, coloured green-white and may lead onto orange or red berries on mature specimens. These are best grown as specimen plants or, in frost-prone areas, in a warm/temperate greenhouse or as houseplants.
