Waxy olive-green to gray leaves form dense shrubs that make an excellent screen or hedge. An excellent coastal windbreak. Types with variegated foliage are available. Inconspicuous, fragrant flowers develop into berry-like fruits. Some species have 2- to 3-inch long thorns. Prune to control size and to promote dense growth. Start by cuttings.
