|Evergreen or deciduous, these popular shrubs are prized as flowering, fruiting and foliage plants that adapt to various climates and conditions. Some plants have showy or fragrant flower, others bloom in winter, or offer fall color. Ornamental berries come in shades of red, black and blue, and attract birds. Protect from direct sun where summers are long, hot and dry. Water regularly during growing/blooming season, less at other times. Mulch to keep roots cool and moist. Prune to keep plants in shape. Watch the evergreens for spider mites, scale, aphids and thrips.
This vigorous, upright, rounded shrub keeps its long, dark green, narrow leaves until midwinter in the North. In the South it can be evergreen. Creamy white flowers in late spring and early summer are followed by red berries that mature to black.
