  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This vigourous, semi-evergreen shrub or tree bears clusters of small creamy-white flowers in June. These are followed by masses of almost spherical, bright red berries in late autumn. This fabulous autumn display corresponds with the normally deep green leaves taking on a bronze-tint. This is an excellent specimen plant for a sunny spot, but it needs space to express itself. The berries are highly attractive to birds.

  • Garden care: After flowering in late spring or early summer, lightly cut back any branches that spoil the symmetry of the plant and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. In autumn trim back lightly any branches that obscure the display of fruit.

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant
