An Andean shrub from Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Columbia and Venezuela where it makes a large shrub or small tree. My plant is rather slender and looks as though it would fall over if it grew larger than a few feet tall.
I bought it at a local plant sale because I had never heard of it. I was warned that it was a bit tender but that it survived outside locally. I haven't had the courage to try it yet but I have plenty of long spindly stems to use as cuttings next year and then out it will go (it suffers the predations of red spider mite in the greenhouse).
