This variety grows as a shrub and can get to 2.5m high and across.
It will grow well in any sunny position as long as the soil has some drainage.
It needs to be trimmed back at least every winter. It must be noted that it is a deciduous shrub and will drop all of it's leaves, indicating that it is time to prune it back quite hard.
Pruning also increases crop yield.
Lycium barbarum flowers during Spring and fruits in late Spring and Summer.
If trimmed back after fruiting it may fruit again in February.
Grow notes and tips are available for download after your purchase. While they are perhaps not the most decorative of plants in the garden, their ability to produce at least one and usually two crops of berry a year makes them a worthwhile inclusion in any garden situation

It is trimmed back twice a year to encourage new wood to come from the roots.
