In 2006 I had to move this from the back to the front yard when we did the new terraces. It liked the back yard better and sulked for a few years. I babied it with lots of compost. In 2011 it finally started growing vigorously and fruiting heavily.
Popular around here for the glowing Husky Purple berries in fall and winter. Doesnt look like much the rest of the year.
