    A tropical-looking, evergreen shrub with gorgeously glossy, deep green palmate leaves. In autumn, creamy white flowers are produced in large panicles, which are often followed by round, black fruit. It makes a superb feature in an exotic-style garden, where the large leaves team well with bamboos and grasses.

  • Garden care: Prune lightly in mid- to late spring, trimming shoots that spoil the symmetry. Protect plants from cold, drying winds
