This is a versatile, evergreen beauty: tough enough to thrive in common roadside plantings and pretty enough to be a specimen in sophisticated gardens. The urn-shaped, glowing, PINK, fall flowers, and simultaneous, showy, round orange-red fruit (sort of strawberry-sized) ornament the plant on into winter. The fruits are edible if you so desire...but sadly they are not as sweet & tasty as genuine strawberries. Attractive, flaky, brownish-orange bark and twisty branches are worth showing off if you choose to prune the shrub into a small tree form.  This cultivar is a bit hard to find in the trade...get 'em while you can!

Mature size: 6 - 8 feet T & W

Minimum temperature: 0° F
