Antidesma erostre Wild Currant
This bushy shrub makes a very decorative screen and the contrast between the dark green shiny leaves and the red panicles of fruit is simply stunning. Small inconspicuous flowers produce clusters of edible sweet red/black berries twice a year. Antidesma originates in the upland rainforests of north Queensland and is slow growing at first, but once established can reach to 3m tall with a 2m spread. Formative pruning will produce a very attractive hardy hedge, tolerant of sun or shade - a great productive addition to any garden.
