Treacle berry (Smilacina racemosa and stellata)
We have plants available growing
in 7 cm pots.
Coming from the woodland,
are useful plants, preferring as they do a good deal of shade.
Hardy herbaceous perennials,
will grow about 60 cm tall and once established will spread under trees.
We have two forms available;
, which has large racemes of white frothy flowers and is a little more productive in the fruit department;
, which has white star like flowers and spreads more by underground runners.
Both produce small orangey red fruits in the autumn, which have an unusual bittersweet flavour said to be reminiscent of treacle.
