Dwarf form with leathery green leaves. Small reddish-purple flowers in spring. Self-fertilising and therefore freely produces red berries.

Grows in almost any soil, unless waterlogged. Best in shade but will tolerate sun in cool areas.

From tip cuttings, about 12cm long, taken in summer or autumn. It is usually possible to root cuttings by standing in a jar of water.
Fertile seeds are produced, but will not come true.
