Dense, bushy, evergreen shrub with large glossy, dark green leaves. It is extremely hardy and is an ideal hedging plant, due to its fast growth rate and year round cover. It can cope with deep shade as well as full sun. Small white flowers are produced on spikes in mid-spring, followed by cherry red berries.
These half-standard trees have a clear stem of 1.2metres with the head on top, so measure approximately 2-2.5m in total height.
