This is a lower growing variety of the species, as it only reaches 9 feet tall but is typically smaller. It is an evergreen dense, compact shrub with thick, round, waxy leaves that are glossy green above and whitish underneath. Fragrant bee-attracting white flowers bloom in late spring to early summer and then are followed by blue-black berries. Plant in sun or light shade and water regularly. It is a good hedge candidate and can be trained to nearly any shape but care should be used when pruning using shears as the cut leaves remain on the plant so it is better to be pruned and not sheared if plants are to be viewed not in the distance.
