Berry Box™ Pyracomeles

As cute as a button in almost every respect. Button-like blooms arrive in spring in clusters. Their perfect five-petaled white and pink flowers scatter prettily across the tiny evergreen foliage. Later on, berries replace the blooms and bunch together neatly along each branch. As the berries age, they change from orange to red, perfect as the seasons change. It grows in a compact, albeit whimsical, form that fits nicely in the middle of the border or in a container at a walkway. Either placement is sure to bring some bright color to your fall and winter views.

Plant Care

Light: Thrives in a sunny spot. It can get anywhere from 4 hours minimum to a full day of exposure.

Soil: Not particular about its soil requirements, just needs good drainage.

Water: Has average water needs. After it’s established, it’s pretty drought-tolerant.

Fertilizing: Could use an application of fertilizer in the springtime. Use one formulated for flowering shrubs.

Pruning: Doesn’t really need much pruning. Naturally quite dense. If you’d like to shape it, you can do so in the springtime after it’s put out a flush of growth.
