A really excellent plant: evergreen foliage, pretty flowers and tasy berries. This compact evergreen shrub bears delicious small berries in late summer and autumn - reputed to be Queen Victoria's favourite fruit. 'Kapow' has larger berries in bigger quantities and fruits on younger plants. It can grow to 2 m in height, and may be kept clipped in a way similar to box. This versatile shrub should be planted in sun or light shade, and has a tolerance of drought and seaside conditions, though it prefers fertile, well-drained soil. It also grows well in a pot in a sunny spot. The foliage is scented when crushed. 3L container. Plants displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.
