    This showy evergreen shrub will offer interest throughout the year. Its arching branches are clothed in lustrous mid-green leaves, each with a downy reverse, and then in summer small pink flowers appear, putting on a colourful show. Then, in late autumn, the branches are weighed down with an abundance of small, orange-red berries, which will help attract birds into the garden. It's very easy to grow, and it can be used to add colour to the shrub border - or to create an informal, ornamental hedge.

  • Garden care: After flowering, lightly cut back any branches that spoil the symmetry of the plant and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. In autumn trim back lightly any branches that obscure the display of fruit.
