are herbaceous plants that are related to honeysuckle, but are grown primarily for their fruit, which grow in tight clumps just over the leaves, and are red or white, depending on the species. They are easily grown and long-lived, thriving in partial shade under deciduous trees or with small shrubs.
|Triosteum pinnatifidum has pinnate leaves and quite large, pure white fruit, so looks very attractive in late summer and autumn. It is much less often seen in cultivation (or in the wild) than the red-fruited Triosteum himalayanum.|
