A tough reliable evergreen low growing ericaceous plant from China. Ideal in situations where the soil does not dry out through summer. Deep green leaves are around 1 cm long and a little less wide, slightly serrated and high degree of gloss sheen. Flowers are borne in mid summer and are white, bell-like and hang pendulously from the branches. The main attraction comes in late summer and autumn in the shape of clean white berries in clusters which persist into early winter.
