This dwarf shrub is deciduous and very hardy, withstanding almost any cold temperatures. Although it can tolerate the extreme cold, it does not like hot summers.
It has unique regular, flat branches that appear in a herringbone pattern throughout the plant.
The leaves are dark, glossy green with an outer fringe of creamy white and about 1-2 cm in length. The foliage is especially impressive in the autumn season as the leaves change to vibrant red colours.
The light-pink and white flowers that appear in the spring will first turn into small green fruits in the summer season and then later a reddish colour. Though these fruits are inedible, they remain to decorate the plant after the leaves drop for winter.
This plant provides excellent groundcover due to the density of its branches and leaves. As it also prefers sun, it works very well in landscaping open, sunny areas which are prone to erosion. They also do well in rock gardens or along walled areas.
It is commonly called rockspray. After being established in rocky areas, it can tolerate poor soil conditions, drought and will continue to spread or “spray”.
