Densely bushy evergreen shrub of rather variable habit, from wide-spreading to upright. Occasionally forms a small tree. Tiny, green to blue-green, scale-like leaves cover the branchlets. Insignificant flowers are followed by blue berry-like fruits.
Several named cultivars are available.

Best in reasonable, moist soil in full sun or light shade, but quite tough and tolerant once established. Very hardy.

From seed or semi-hardwood cuttings.

Good landscaping plant.
