Preferring poor, sandy, acidic soil, this mat-forming evergreen ground cover will withstand a range of soil types; salt-tolerant, too. It is especially vigorous and resistant to diseases like leaf spots, galls, and mildew. Fast-growing and healthy, it blankets well!. Jade green leaves turn orange in winter; pink urn-shaped blooms in spring are followed by scarlet berries in summer. Introduced by UBC Botanic Garden, British Columbia, Canada because of its improved disease resistance over the species.

Mature size: 6–12 inches T x 2–4 feet W
