Dense, bushy, evergreen shrub with large glossy, dark green leaves. It makes an excellent hedging plant, and can cope with deep shade under trees as well as full sun. Small white flowers are produced on spikes in mid- spring, followed by cherry red berries which are harmful if eaten. 'Rotundifolia' will make a dense evergreen screen or hedge if lightly clipped to maturity and is a robust plant for exposed sites where privacy and shelter are paramount.
