UGNI ( TAZZIBERRY )
This popular little ornamental plant should be planted anywhere the strawberry aroma from the fruit can be appreciated. It is ideally grown as a low growing hedge or a container specimen. The small glossy dark-green leaves are tinged with a beautiful red growth when young. The plant becomes smothered with fluffy white flowers in summer and bears pea sized burgundy fruit, that lighten as they ripen, in the autumn. It is best eaten on its own to really appreciate the unique aromatic flavour.

The Dainty pale pink flowers have the most amazing scent....especially at night time....Lovely to put them near where you sit outside once the sun goes down.Plant them with some shelter from the afternoon sun.Delicious fruit,too - straight from the bush. | B Williams - Wantirna, VIC 16-Jan-2015

All 3 dried over a 2yr period. They were in full sun and it's very windy here. I would recommend a sheltered spot with afternoon shade in hot climates.
