Often grown as a foliage houseplant for cool situations, this is also a very successful shade-tolerant garden plant. It is suitable for seaside gardens, or against warm walls and in sheltered corners inland - hard frost can injure the leaves, but plants will recover if the roots are protected from frost. The large glossy leaves make it a useful addition to tropical-type planting plans. Plant in spring to allow time to establish before the frosts. Remove berries to increase leaf size, and water and feed regularly.
