An evergreen, hardy shrub with dense dark green foliage, upright texture, this dwarf type of Raphiolepsis is highly admired for its shiny appeal. The plant blooms semi-double, pretty white flowers in Spring and Winter and these flowers are further followed by little blackberries in Summer. Grows well in part shade to full sun but flowers perfect in full sunlight. Adaptable to most soil types but prefers well-drained and enriched soils. Relatively low maintenance shrub and needs minimal watering as the plant is resilient to salt, drought, heat, frost, and wind. To maintain shape, it requires minimal pruning in Spring. Excellent for low hedging, borders, massed planting in pots and in shrubberies.
