This is an evergreen groundcover that will grow to a height of .6m (2) and a width of 1.5m (5) at maturity. Under good growing conditions it should grow quickly covering the ground very well. The branches arch gracefully bearing dark green leaves which are arranged in an alternate fashion. In the winter the leaves take on a purple cast.
The limbs produce scads of small white flowers in April & May that can persist to mid-June before they morph to red berries in the fall. The berries are not eaten as they have bitter flavor. Birds dont seem to find them all that attractive in the winter. Planting for groundcover : 5-8 pcs /m2
Light sun/light shade
