A hardy, resilient evergreen shrub with dense thickets of small, dark green, prickled leaves and panicles of small white flowers from late Spring into Summer sometimes known as Prickly Heath. A self-fertile plant that can be propagated via suckering, making it easy to spread and care for if so desired. The flowers give way to deep crimson, fleshy berries in Autumn.
Plant in moist, well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soils and keep in partially or fully shaded positions. A hardy, low maintenance shrub that will grow well in most regions with little extra requirements. Fruit can cause indigestion and upset stomach and are not recommended for human consumption.
