Hardiness level Green
A hardy, prostrate evergreen shrub with abundant white flowers and red berries. It forms mats or mounds, can cascade over walls and even suppress weeds, growing only 0.8metres in height but could spread up to 3metres over 10 years.
Happy in partial shade, but flowering and fruiting will be best in full sun Apart from extremes of dry or boggy ground, it is tolerant of most soils and aspects but better out of the cold drying winds. Prune as required. Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
