Product Description

Known as the partridge berry or checkerberry, this dwarf evergreen creeping shrub grows to a maximum height of just 30cm. From June to August it produces fragrant and dainty white bell-shaped flowers often blushed pink with yellow veining. After flowering, gorgeous bright pink-red berries are produced in abundance, contrasting against the shiny deep green foliage. This shrub is ideal for attracting birds to the garden and with winter around the corner they'll appreciate it more than ever. We'd recommend planting in a shaded or partially shaded spot in the border or rockery. 9cm pot grown plants supplied.
