What a fantastic evergreen hedging shrub or small multi-branched tree.
Small dark green leaves and a profusion of pure white flowers with prominent creamy-white stamens. These are followed by small black edible berries mainly used for sauces and jams.
Mature shrubs are multi stemmed and have stunning cinnamon coloured, flaking bark.
Full sun to part shade, moist to dry, well-drained soils.
Grows approx 3-4m tall and wide if left unpruned.
Makes an excellent 2-3m tall clipped hedge.
Plant 1m apart.
