The Japan Pepper or Sanshō is an obscure medium sized deciduous shrub closely related to Sichuan pepper. Used by the Japanese for culinary purposes, this form has far less in the way of spines. The pinnate leaves are very pretty with small leaflets. I love the lemony fragrance emitted when brushed past or fondled and the red fruit clusters are attractive. A tough shrub for most soils in sun or semi-shade.
