Description

An excellent choice for winter colour, and ideal for a container by the front door where you'll be cheered by its jolly red berries in autumn and winter. In the summer, this will be covered in white to pale pink flowers.

Care Tips

Grow in a container of loam-based ericaceous compost positioned where you can enjoy the glossy foliage and berries in winter. Can also be planted in a moist, acidic-neutral soil and allowed to spread and form ground cover.
