Tasmanian Mountain Pepper #2

The new growth on one of the Tasmanian Mountain Peppers is very encouraging.
Have a closer look at the flowers.

That looks a very pretty plant. What cultural conditions does it enjoy?

They are pretty hardy plants. They like a bit of shade and the soil should be kept moist - I mulch very, very thickly. It has been very slow to grow, but that could be because of the extreme seasons we experienced the last 2 years.
