Full description

Genus of species of deciduous, semi-evergreen, and ever- green shrubs, trees, and climbers found mostly in woodland and thickets.

They are cultivated for their foliage, autumn colour, and ornamental, often ribbed, winged, or lobed, spherical or almost spherical fruits, borne from autumn to winter, which split to reveal seeds with often colourful arils.

Leaves are opposite (rarely alternate), simple, very variable in shape, and toothed or scalloped.

Cymes of 3, sometimes 7-15, small, green or white, sometimes purple-red or red- brown flowers are borne in late spring or summer.

Grow in any well- drained soil in full sun or light shade.
