Customer Comments on Mountain Pepper
Started with 5 seedlings, grow well in my planted "rainforest", have lost most of original plants to drought, need moisture, but have regenerated in a thick re-growth by self seeding, under rainfall only conditions. medium shrub- Mornington Peninsula | anthony miceli - arthurs seat, vic 26-Jul-2018
