Popular for hedging due to its dense bushy foliage with dark green oval leaves. From Autumn it has an abundance of flattened clusters of small creamy-white flushed with pink star-like flowers, which are produced from Winter through to Spring. Shiny, blue-black berries develop later in the year adding further interest. Its tall growth habit makes it perfect for adding extra height to mixed shrub beds. It also makes excellent and manageable evergreen hedging.
