    A compact, evergreen shrub grown for its glossy dark green leaves and attractive berries. In late spring and early summer single urn-shaped, white flowers are produced, followed by large white berries. Like all Gaultheria, it is best to plant a male and female bush next to each other. (the male variety is 'Mascula') together to ensure a good crop. This is an attractive shrub which prefers acidic soil.

  • Garden care: Lightly trim after flowering or prune any shoots that soils the shape of the shrub. Remove suckers to help restrict growth. When planting, add plenty of leaf mould or shredded bark to the planting hole
  • Harmful if eaten
