Plant Information

Pseudopanax Dark Star is a striking hybrid form of this prehistoric looking shrub from New Zealand. The unusual evergreen foliage is carried on upright stems, the leaves are trifoliate, deep green when young, darkening to a dark purple as they mature.

Pseudopanax Dark Star makes a perfect centre piece to a border or a specimen in a large pot. In cold winters the tips may be damaged by frost but it will regrow in the spring. Can be grown in a pot and overwintered in a cool greenhouse in colder areas, protect from winter winds.
