Coming from Australia and living near forest rivers the climbing appleberry or blueberry grows to 2m over trellis or through trees. Giving creamy yellow, purple lipped easy flowers in spring the real star of the show are the summer fruits, clusters of grape sized purple berries. Evergreen and hardy they are slow growing. The flowers are over by June with the fruits changing from white to purples blue by the end of the month. Sow the seeds in a seed mix and keep moist. They can take several months to germinate so, patience is required.
