Dense, bushy, evergreen shrub with large glossy, dark green leaves. It is extremely hardy and often used as a hedging plant, due to its fast growth rate and year round cover. It can cope with deep shade under trees as well as full sun. Small white flowers are produced on spikes in mid-spring, followed by cherry red berries.
This spectacular parachute form specimen makes a great feature tree and is approximately 2-2.5metres tall.
