"Green dragon's display of brilliant red berries, late September, Northcentral Florida, zone 8b. The spiral leaf stalk is now brown and fallen on the ground, leaving only this thick spike of berries. The seed should be sown immediately, as it ripens, in a moist, rich soil, where the plant will receive dappled shade in the Spring, and deep shade during the Summer."
