Common Name:  Blue Tongue

Best Position:  Part shade, with a rich, moist soil that drains freely.

Plant Description:  Blue Tongue has leathery, dark green foliage and contrasting red stems that flowers continually throughout Spring and Summer, producing showy mauve to purple flowers that last just a few days before small black berries begin to appear. This sweet fruit is best eaten fresh, and offers a fun and messy novelty for children. Berries can be picked and eaten directly off the shrub. Tucker Bush Safety: Whether using our commercially grown Tucker Bush plants, or sourcing your own fruit & plant material from the wild, caution should be exercised. Fruit and any edible plant material may require specific preparation to be safely eaten. Please read our plant labels and also consult the www.tuckerbush.com.au website for specific plant information.

Best Uses:  This shrub is the perfect addition to an ornamental garden. This hardy evergreen prefers part shade, and will need protection from hot winds and hot afternoon sun in the Summer.
