Golden Lanterns-Gal Pot [SPRING]

Native to the lower altitudes in Tibet, this shrub is also called Chocolate berry, this is an amazing edible ornamental.

In the South it's a beautiful year round upright shrub to 6' tall but in the north it dies back to the ground each winter and resprouts. It is hardy to Zone 6 if mulched. In late summer and early fall it produces lots of small round green berries that turn dark purple when ripe. They have a flavor akin to bitter chocolate.
