Red berries and cascading evergreen foliage last all winter

Red berries and cascading evergreen foliage last all winter

 

One of my favorite shrubs in the garden.  A stalwart backbone shrub for every garden!

Glossy evergreen leaves cascade gracefully.  White flowers panicles in summer, followed by enormous clusters of bright red berries which cheer me up all winter and look fabulous in holiday swags, bouquets, and wreaths.  New growth is colorful, ranging from chartreuse to pink to red to maroon.  A real four-season plant.

Prefers sun but will tolerate even deep shade, with fewer flowers and berries.  Highly drought-tolerant once established.
