Breynia cernua ‘Ironstone Range’ – Coffee Bush

A bushy shrub to 2 metres high and a metre wide, with red brown foliage that gently weeps, highlighted with red berries from time to time. Does well on a wide range of soil types, and likes a sunny position. Best in warm temperate to tropical areas, as cooler temperatures can lead to leaf drop. Prune lightly for more compact growth.
