Although they can grow to 3.5m tall, they look fantastic as a dense, dwarf shrub. It’s not just their foliage, but their flowers too. Small, tubular white flowers bloom in spring, then in autumn purple berries are borne on the hedge.
Also, they are great for wildlife. Insects are attracted to their flowers, birds love it for nesting and other wildlife such as dormice appreciate it as a place for shelter.
