Spiny shrub from the U.S. Southwest. Bright red berries persist into winter. Our plants are a few years old, but stayed pretty scrawny for a long time. They are finally coming into their own in a shady stretch of our driveway bed. I like how finely toothed the leaves are.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

- Seed from HPS/MAG '09/'10 exchange. Soaked seeds for 2 days, changing water several times. Baggy 35F (6w) - 70F (60%G, 4-6d). Also Baggy 70F (40%G, 20-23d). Both trials involved just five seeds, so the difference between the two treatments is not statistically significant.
