Dan Hinkley Plant Explorer: Mountain Pepper

Join Monrovia’s Nicholas Staddon for a glimpse into Dan Hinkley’s garden in the Pacific Northwest. In this episode, they discuss Drimys lanceolata. This refined, evergreen shrub for mild climate gardens offers distinctive foliage on brilliant red stems. Small perfumed blossoms yield glistening black fruit in autumn that when dried, is widely used as a spice. This species is colloquially referred to as Tasmanian Pepper in its native habitat.
