This very dwarf evergreen shrub features dense branching and a low, mounded form with thick, leathery, dark green, lance-shaped leaves. Very showy clusters of fragrant white flowers in the spring produce bright crimson-colored berries, creating a very handsome accent for shaded areas of the landscape, or containers.

Design Ideas: A small shrub for shade that is self-fertile, and so will set berries without worrying about separate male and female plants. It's small enough to plant as a grouping even in tiny courtyard gardens.

Grows easily in organically rich, moist, well-drained soils; prefers dappled shade but tolerates heavy shade well. Water deeply, regularly in first few growing seasons to establish root system; once established, water as needed to maintain evenly moist soil. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
