We have just a scant few of this dwarf form of the Tasman Mountain Pepper which we presume to be from an exposed high elevation site on Mt Wellington.  This is ideally suited to rock gardens where it will make a slow and low ball of reddish stems bejeweled with white flowers and oh so peppery black fruit.  We were given this plant by the late Michael Wickenden of Cally Gardens in Scotland.  Possibly the first introduction to the US.  Small plants of this small rarity.
