A useful evergreen shrub for winter interest in the garden. Dense dark green foliage and flowers which appear over a long time from late winter to spring. The pink flower buds open to tiny star-shaped white flowers, which are followed by small blue/black almost iridescent coloured fruits. We plant this as a hedge, for use in borders, as a specimen and for use in pots for winter colour. Will grow in full sun, shade and partial shade.
