Best trained on a sunny wall, but surprisingly tough with a little protection.
An attractive Californian species with profuse palest rosy white flowers in spring among small shiny leaves on a compact gnarly shrub.
An ideal species for Mediterranean style gardens growing among other sun-loving drought-tolerant species.

Related to but not the same as the more familiar eastern buffalo berry - R.odoratum. This has similar tubular yellow flowers, but tinted red at the tips, and it is a much more compact plant.
The flowers appear early among the new leaves rather than on bare branches. There might even be some orange berries if you're lucky.
