Description
 
Cute little shrublet in the Ericaceae from the montane flora of Tasmania. This was first collected by Robert Brown in 1802 from Mt Wellington and is among the hardier of the Tasmanian plants. Rather like an upright heather in appearance, this has terminal fuchsia-pink/red flowers followed by bluish fruit. Quite the charmer. This has been infrequently grown in the US so let us know how yours does.
